Abstract

Mutations in VHL, RET, NF1, SDHB, SDHC, and SDHD can give rise to pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma. These different genetic lesions may all act by decreasing the activity of a 2-oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenase, SM-20/EgIN3/PHD3, resulting in reduced apoptosis of neural crest cells during development.
