25500790 investigated the specific mutations in PROP1, POU1F1, LHX3, and HESX1 genes in patients with combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) in Turkey
25399296 LHX3 is upregulated in high-grade oligodendroglioma.
24100213 The downstream enhancer region of LHX3 in regulating gene expression at the cellular level during development, is reported.
23766128 Data suggest that low serum FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) levels in men with SNP in promoter region of FSHB (FSH beta subunit; -211G/T) result from reduced LHX3 binding to FSHB promoter and down-regulation of FSHB transcription in gonadotrophs.
22503243 The present study was unable to confirm a significant association of all of the three SNPs, rs12338076 in LHX3-QSOX2, and rs1457595 and rs17032362 in IGF1, with adult height in our study population.
22286346 descriprion of pediatric patients with combined pituitary hormone deficiency with a novel mutation in LHX3; the T194R mutation affects a critical residue in the LHX3 protein; study extends understanding of phenotypic features, molecular mechanism and developmental course associated with mutations in the LHX3 gene
22238406 This study of the first nonconsanguineous patient with LHX3 mutations demonstrates the pleiotropic roles of LHX3 during development and its full involvement in the complex disease phenotype of syndromic combined pituitary hormone deficiency.
22194342 This study establishes ISL1 as a novel transcriptional regulator of LHX3 and describes a potential mechanism for regulation by PITX1.
21249393 LHX3 mutations are a rare cause of hypopituitarism. We report on a patient with a novel LHX3 mutation in exon 2 with the phenotype of combined pituitary hormone deficiency with short neck and sensorineural hearing impairment. [review]
