抄録

MKRN3, located on chromosome 15q11.2, encodes makorin ring-finger 3, which is an upstream suppressor of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Mutation of this gene induces central precocious puberty (CPP). As MKRN3 is maternally imprinted, only the paternal allele is expressed. This is the first report of an 8-year-old Japanese girl with CPP caused by a novel frameshift mutation in MKRN3 (p.Glu229Argfs∗3).
