Thyroid diseases

Thyroid diseases are characterized by hyperfunction (hyperthyroidism), hypofunction (hypothyoidism) or inflammation (thyroiditis) of the thyroid gland or the presence of thyroid nodules, which can be benign or cancerous. All of these disorders can result in an enlarged thyroid gland that causes swelling of the neck, a so-called goiter.

Here, the authors carry out genome-wide meta-analysis for thyroid hormone (TH) levels, hyper- and hypothyroidism and identify SLC17A4 as a TH transporter and AADAT as a TH metabolizing enzyme.
