BackgroundARMC5 is a putative tumor suppressor gene that is frequently mutated in primary bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia (PBMAH), a rare cause of CushingÂ’s syndrome. The function of ARMC5 is poorly known, aside the fact that it regulates cell apoptosis and adrenal steroidogenesis in by mechanisms still unknown. Tumor suppressor genes play an important role in oxidative stress.MethodsIn this s...

Introduction: Germline inactivating ARMC5 (Armadillo repeat containing 5) mutations are responsible for Primary Bilateral Macronodular Adrenal Hyperplasia (PBMAH). ARMC5 presents the characteristics of a tumor suppressor gene. Mutations are observed in more than 85% of patients with a clear familial presentation and 20 to 25% of apparently sporadic cases. Genetic alterations are spread all over ARMC5 coding sequence and more than two-third of them ar...

Introduction: In Primary Bilateral Macronodular Adrenal Hyperplasia (PBMAH), cortisol secretion may be consecutive to physiological stimuli, through the illegitimate expression of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) in adrenocortical cells. The most characterized is the overexpression of GIP receptor (GIPR) leading to food-dependent Cushing syndrome (FDCS) but it has not been associated with the consecutive inactivation of ARMC5 responsible for 25% of PBMAH. This work aimed to ...
