15476446 mutations in the TPIT gene, a T-box factor selectively expressed in developing corticotroph cells, have been found in cases of early-onset isolated ACTH deficiency
12970370 Tpit, along with NGFI-B and SRC-2, is part of a transcription regulatory complex assembled on the POMC promoter in response to hormonal stimulation.
12651888 TPIT has a role in expression of the pro-opiomelanocortin gene and terminal differentiation of the pituitary corticotroph lineage, and its mutation causes early onset pituitary ACTH deficiency
11916612 Review. Association of 2 mutations with an ACTH deficiency is consistent with the role of tbx19 in differentiation of POMC cells.
