BACKGROUND Puberty is controlled by genetic and environmental factors. This review examines the genetic basis for puberty by evaluating known gene mutations associated with disordered puberty in humans. At present, at least 17 different single-gene mutations are recognized as being associated with delayed or absent puberty in humans. Several of these genes are involved in the development of the olfactory nervous system, with mutations typically resulting in anosmia/hyposmia and hypogonadotropic… CONTINUE READING
