- 2007, Dominique N. Long, Sarah McGuire, Michael A. Levine, Lee S. Weinstein, Emily L. Germain-Lee, Body Mass Index Differences in Pseudohypoparathyroidism Type 1a Versus Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism May Implicate Paternal Imprinting of Gαs in the Development of Human Obesity: Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, volume 92, number 3, pages 1073–1079:
- Because Gαs is paternally imprinted in certain hormone target tissues, maternal inheritance of AHO leads to multihormone resistance [pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a (PHP1a)], whereas paternal inheritance leads to AHO alone [pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (pseudoPHP)]. Classically, the obesity in AHO is described as occurring similarly in both conditions.
