Mutations in PRKAR1A are causative.[4] Sequence analysis of the PRKAR1A coding region, available on a clinical basis, has a mutation detection rate of approximately 60%.
The MAX, PRKAR1A, SDHA, SDHAF2, SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, TMEM127, and VHL genes were analysed by PCR and next-generation sequencing of both DNA strands of the entire coding region and the highly conserved exon-intron splice junctions was performed.
CC patients have mutations in the PRKAR1A gene; PRKAR1A is a regulator of protein kinase A and mutations cause dysregulation of the catalytic subunit of the enzyme.
(5) More recently, PRKAR1A loss was implicated in a subset of FLCs occurring in patients with the Carney complex, who carry PRKAR1A germline mutations.
