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. Remarkably, this gene coincides with a region of suggested linkage at 19p13.2, identified in a whole genome scan [Hamshere et al. (2005); Arch Gen Psychiatry 62;1081-1088].

Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine malignant tumor. Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is an aggressive tumor arising from calcitonin-producing parafollicular cells. MTC has autosomal dominant inheritance and accounts for 5–10 % of all thyroid cancers. It occurs in hereditary (25 %, hMTC) and sporadic (75 %, sMTC) forms. Gain-of-function mutations(More)
