Characterization and Rescue of a Pathogenic D63N Mutant Human Glucagon Receptor That Causes a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Syndrome (Mahvash disease) Abstract #1256

Introduction: We have previously demonstrated that inactivating glucagon receptor (GCGR) mutations cause a novel hereditary human disease of hyperglucagonemia, pancreatic α cell hyperplasia, and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (Mahvash disease). We recently identified a novel missense GCGR mutation, D63N, in a family with Mahvash disease.
Aim(s): To characterize and rescue the D63N mutant GCGR.
Materials and methods: An EGFP-tagged D63N (D63N-EGFP) was expressed in HEK 293 cells.

Introduction: Pancreatic alpha cell hyperplasia and hyperglucagonaemia without the glucagonoma syndrome is a rare clinical syndrome not widely recognised. Here we describe a novel mutation in the glucagon receptor gene (GCGR) in a patient with the disease.

#1253 A Novel Hereditary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Syndrome Associated with Biallelic Inactivation of the Glucagon Receptor
Introduction: Hereditary pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are associated with 4 known autosomal dominant syndromes including MEN1, vHL disease, NF1, and TS. Glucagon receptor (GCGR) inactivation in human (Mahvash disease) has been associated with asymptomatic hyperglucagonemia, α-cell hyperplasia, and PanNET, and may represent a new hereditary syndrome.

#564 Genetic Alterations in Glucagon Cell Adenomatosis
Introduction: Glucagon cell adenomatosis (GCA) was recently recognized by us as a multifocal neoplastic disease of the endocrine pancreas unrelated to MEN-1. Multiple micro- and a few macrotumors are found on the background of a hyperplasia of glucagon cells. The disease may cause unspecific abdominal symptoms and only rarely a glucagonoma syndrome. Recently a mutation in the glucagon receptor (GCGR) gene was described in one GCA
patient.
