A novel point mutation in P450c17 (CYP17) causing combined 17alpha-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency.

Abstract

CONTEXT Combined 17alpha-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase deficiency is a rare cause of congenital adrenal hyperplasia and hypogonadism. Novel single amino acid changes in P450c17 provide potentially important insights into key structural domains for enzyme function. OBJECTIVE, DESIGN, AND SETTING We report a novel missense mutation in P450c17 in a 17-yr-old… (More)
