Mutations of the TSH receptor gene cause constitutive activation of the TSH receptor responsible for cases of familial hereditary hyperthyroidism (germline mutations), cases of sporadic congenital hyperthyroidism (de novo mutations), and thyroid hyperfunctioning autonomous adenomas (somatic mutations). The discovery of these mutations not only clarifies the… (More)
