Reproduction, smell, and neurodevelopmental disorders: genetic defects in different hypogonadotropic hypogonadal syndromes.
Liège, Belgium. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), Dec 2013
Interestingly, defects in PROKR2, FGFR1, FGF8, CHD7, DUSP6, and WDR11 genes are also associated with normosmic IHH, whereas mutations in KISS1/KISSR, TAC3/TACR3, GNRH1/GNRHR, LEP/LEPR, HESX1, FSHB, and LHB are only present in patients with normosmic IHH.
FSH directly regulates bone mass.
New York City, United States. In Cell, 2006
Neither FSHbeta nor FSH receptor (FSHR) null mice have bone loss despite severe hypogonadism.
