Folliculin

Das FLCN-Gen kodiert Folliculin, welches, wenn mutiert, verschiedene Nierentumore, das Birt-Hogg-Dube-Syndrom und habituellen Pneumothorax auslösen kann. Sowohl somatische als auch Keimbahnmutationen können vorkommen. Bei einer familiären Häufung sollte an Keimbahnmutationen gedacht werden, jedoch ist auch die two-hit Hypothese zu berücksichtigen.
