We have recently reported the first case of mutation in the core promoter sequence of the human calreticulin gene in a family case of schizoaffective disorder.

The identified mutation(More)
A B S T R A C T Background: Autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD) are common, with important epidemiological data, including family and twin studies, supporting a strong genetic background on the etiology of AITD.
