Central precocious puberty

Common Name(s)

Central precocious puberty

Early activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis results in gonadotropin-dependent precocious puberty, also known as central precocious puberty, which is clinically defined by the development of secondary sexual characteristics before the age of 8 years in girls and 9 years in boys. Pubertal timing is influenced by complex interactions among genetic, nutritional, environmental, and socioeconomic factors. The timing of puberty is associated with risks of subsequent disease: earlier age of menarche in girls is associated with increased risk of breast cancer, endometrial cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Central precocious puberty has also been associated with an increased incidence of conduct and behavior disorders during adolescence (summary by {1:Abreu et al., 2013}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Central Precocious Puberty Central precocious puberty-2 (CPPB2; {615346}) is caused by mutation in the MKRN3 gene ({603856}) on chromosome 15q11.

Genetic Variations of the KISS1R Gene in Korean Girls with Central Precocious Puberty.
 

Author(s): Yeon Joung Oh, Young Jun Rhie, Hyo Kyoung Nam, Hye Ryun Kim, Kee Hyoung Lee

Journal: J. Korean Med. Sci.. 2017 Jan;32(1):108-114.

 

The timing of puberty onset varies greatly among individuals, and much of this variation is modulated by genetic factors. This study aimed to identify the kisspeptin receptor (KISS1R) gene variations and to investigate the associations between these variations and central precocious ...
