Molecular diagnosis of DAX-1/NR0B1 p.Tyr378Cys mutation segregating with adrenal hypoplasia congenita and variable degree of hypogonadism and infertility. a Pedigree of p.Tyr378Cys kindred depicting family members with primary adrenal insufficiency, hypogonadism and infertility. b DAX-1 peptide domain representation, which the arrow indicates the p.Tyr378Cys mutation in ligand binding domain (LBD) where other hotspot mutations causing adrenal hypoplasia congenita have been described. c Representative chromatogram is shown together with DAX-1/NR0B1 gene reference sequence. The position of the mutation is indicated by a black arrow. d Peptide alignment among DAX-1/NR0B1 orthologues demonstrating its high conserved LBD region
