Abstract: We analyzed the GNAS1 gene in five patients with pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a (PHP1a) by performing polymerase chain reaction, followed by sequencing all 13 exons of the gene, single-stranded conformational polymorphism (SSCP) or heteroduplex analysis (HD). Three novel mutations were discovered: (1) a de novo 3 bp insertion of CTG in codon 47 of exon 1; (2) a missense mutation I103T in exon 4; and (3) a de novo mutation of Arg280Gly in exon 10. Two other mutations, previously described in the literature, include: (1) a de novo 4 bp deletion (ΔGACT) involving codons 189 and 190 in exon 7, and (2) a deletion of a cytosine nucleotide at codon 115 in exon 5. We conclude that mutational analysis of the GNAS1 gene is a strong supportive tool for the diagnosis of PHP1a, and is a useful adjunct to the synthetic parathyroid hormone infusion test for PTH resistance.
