Formatted abstract
Extracellular calcium levels are tightly regulated by parathyroid hormone (PTH). Insufficient production of this hormone, as observed in nonsyndromic isolated hypoparathyroidism, can be caused by mutations in PTH or the genes encoding the parathyroid-specific transcription factor glial cells missing 2 (GCM2) or the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR). However, most cases of isolated hypoparathyroidism remain genetically undefined.

We investigated two unrelated white families in which 15 living members had clinical and laboratory findings consistent with autosomal dominant isolated hypoparathyroidism. After ruling out the presence of mutations in CaSR, PTH, and GCM2 in the index cases (not shown), a genomewide scan revealed linkage to a single chromosomal region for Family A (19p13.3; LOD score, 3.0)...
