Involvement in diseasei

Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 24 without anosmia (HH24)3 Publications
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionA form of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, a group of disorders characterized by absent or incomplete sexual maturation by the age of 18 years, in conjunction with low levels of circulating gonadotropins and testosterone and no other abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. HH24 is characterized by primary amenorrhea in women, oligo or azoospermia with low to normal testosterone levels in men, and infertility.

Natural varianti69 – 691C → G in HH24. 1 Publication
Corresponds to variant rs5030776 [ dbSNP | Ensembl ].
VAR_033015

Pharmaceutical usei

Available under the names Gonal-F or Metrodin HP (Serono) and Puregon (Organon). Used in the treatment of infertility in women with proven hypopituitarism or who have not responded to clomifene; or in superovulation treatment for assisted conception (such as in vitro fertilization). Metrodin HP is also used in the treatment of hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism in men for the stimulation of spermatogenesis.

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
