This book reviews the current state of knowledge on the genetics, molecular biology and physiology of pendrin, with a particular focus on pendrin dysfunction and the consequences for human health.


Pendrin is a membrane transport protein expressed in the thyroid, inner ear, kidney and airways, and was recently found in a variety of other tissues and organs. Pendrin malfunction may cause a genetic disease called Pendred syndrome or non-syndromic deafness.


The book provides a thorough description of the multifaceted role of pendrin in human health and disease. As such, it offers an invaluable tool for physiology and pathology researchers, while also providing essential guidance for otorhinolaryngologists and endocrinologists in the diagnosis of Pendred syndrome and pendrin-related deafness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The purpose is to summarize the current knowledge about the role of pendrin in normal physiology and disease pathology. The intended audience is predominantly researchers and physicians interested in a detailed description of the multifaceted function of pendrin. However, the book also could serve as a good source for undergraduate and graduate students and postgraduate trainees interested in thyroid physiology and pathology as well as physiology, pathology, and diagnosis of deafness in general." (Partha Kasturi, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2017)
