Activating mutations of the alpha chain of the heterotrimeric signal transducer Gs disrupt the inherent guanosine triphosphatase activity of the alpha chain, stimulate adenylyl cyclase, and can result in independent cell proliferation. Such mutations are identified in a number of endocrine disorders, including McCune-Albright syndrome, which is a triad of endocrinopathy, café au lait spots, and polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. The mutation in this syndrome is a missense point mutation in exon 8… CONTINUE READING
