pituitary remain to be determined. Further work on the functional role of AIP should prove informative in revealing key cellular processes involved in genesis of pituitary adenomas, in- cluding potential drug targets. It has not been previously realized that ge- netic predisposition to pituitary adenoma, in par- ticular the GH-oversecreting type, can account for a substantial proportion of cases. Our study not only reveals this aspect of the disease but also provides molecular tools for efficient identification of predisposed individuals. With- out preexisting risk awareness, the patients are typically diagnosed after years of delay, leading to substantial morbidity. Simple tools for efficient clinical follow-up of predisposed in- dividuals are available, underlining the impor- tance of our findings. Our results suggest that inherited tumor sus- ceptibility may be more common than previously thought. The identification of the PAP gene in- dicates that it is possible to identify the causative genetic defects in the low-penetrance conditions even in the absence of a strong family history.
