Our study indicated that the prevalence of GLIS3 variations was 0.3% among studied Chinese CH patients. Multiple variations in one or more CH associated genes can be found in one patient. We found a novel GLIS3 variation c.2159G>A (p.R720Q), thereby expanding the variation spectrum of the gene.
Our results indicate that individually the rs7020673 and rs10758593 SNPs are not significantly associated with T1DM but seem to interact in the predisposition for this disease.

The role of low-frequency variants in type 1 diabetes (T1D) susceptibility still remains to be clarified. In the present study, we analyzed low-frequency variants of the T1D candidate genes in Japanese. We first screened for protein-changing variants of 24 T1D candidate genes in 96 T1D patients and 96 control subjects, and then the association with...
Genetic Diagnosis of Endocrine Disorders
This chapter explores the abnormalities in the development of the thyroid gland during organogenesis referred to as thyroid dysgenesis. Permanent primary congenital hypothyroidism (CH) is mentioned to be the most common congenital endocrine disorder as estimated from systematic biochemical screening of newborns. The functional disorders of the thyr...
