An identical missense mutation in the albumin gene results in familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia in 8 unrelated families.

Familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (FDH) is the most common form of inherited increase of serum thyroxine in Caucasians. It is the result of increased thyroxine-binding to serum proteins and is inherited as a dominant trait. The entire coding region of the albumin gene of a subject with FDH was sequenced. A single nucleotide substitution, G to A transition in codon 218, was found in one of the two alleles, resulting in the replacement of the normal Arg with His. This mutation was found in 9 affected family members but not in 8 unaffected relatives and 18 unrelated normal individuals. The same missense mutation was found in 12 other subjects with FDH belonging to 7 unrelated families. In every individual with FDH, the mutation was associated with the Sac I+ polymorphism in the albumin gene, strongly suggesting a founder effect.
