Thyroid hormone plasma membrane transport defect(DEFECT)

MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Disease or Syndrome
Synonyms: DEFECT; Hyperthyroxinemia, eumetabolic, due to T4 plasma membrane transport; Thyroid hormone resistance due to T4 plasma membrane transport defect
Modes of inheritance:
Autosomal dominant inheritance
MedGen UID:
Concept ID:
Functional Concept
Source: HPO
A mode of inheritance that is observed for traits related to a gene encoded on one of the autosomes (i.e., the human chromosomes 1-22) in which a trait manifests in heterozygotes. In the context of medical genetics, an autosomal dominant disorder is caused when a single copy of the mutant allele is present. Males and females are affected equally, and can both transmit the disorder with a risk of 50% for each child of inheriting the mutant allele.
OMIM®: 188560

Euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia
MedGen UID:
