The article presents various studies related to endocrinology and metabolism. These studies include an acceptor splice site mutation in the calcium-sensing receptor gene in familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia, proparathyroid hormone processing by the proprotein convertase PC7 and potent GRIP1 activation of human vitamin D receptor.

    Background Loss-of-function mutations of vitamin D-24 hydroxylase have recently been recognized as a cause of hypercalcaemia and nephrocalcinosis/nephrolithiasis in infants and adults. True prevalence and natural history of this condition are still to be defined. Methods We describe two adult...
