Abstract:
The roles of two transcription factors, GATA3 and PARAFIBROMIN, that are involved in parathyroid function have been studied. Thus, loss of function mutations of the dual zinc finger transcription factor GATA3 result in hypoparathyroidism-deafness-renal dysplasia (HDR) syndrome; whilst loss of function mutations of PARAFIBROMIN which is a nuclear protein with a likely role in the RNA polymerase complex, lead to the hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour (HPT-JT) syndrome.
