Abstract:

Hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor (HPT-JT) syndrome is a familial multi-tumor syndrome resulting from mutations in the HRPT2 tumor suppressor gene, which encodes a protein product named parafibromin. We review current knowledge of the renal manifestations of the HPT-JT syndrome, and examine recent advances in understanding the biological function of parafibromin.
