Germain-Lee, ''Body Mass Index Differences in Pseudohypoparathyroidism Type 1a Versus '''Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism May Implicate Paternal Imprinting of G?s in the Development of Human Obesity'', ''Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism , Volume 92, no. 3, pages 1073-1079,
  • Because G?s is paternally imprinted in certain hormone target tissues, maternal inheritance of AHO leads to multihormone resistance [pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1a (PHP1a)], whereas paternal inheritance leads to AHO alone [pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism (pseudoPHP)]. Classically, the obesity in AHO is described as occurring similarly in both conditions.
