CPHD occurs due to recognized mutations of transcription factors such as HESX1, PROP1, POU1F1, LHX3, and LHX4.
In addition, we noticed heterogeneous expression of other embryonic markers such as CDYL, FOXC1, HESX1, JARID2, MEIS1, and MYST3 at P15 in hPDLSCs, hDPSCs, and hGMSCs.
HESX1 mutations are an uncommon cause of septooptic dysplasia and hypopituitarism.
