FPAH demonstrates a female preponderance and may undergo genetic anticipation (12). Linkage analysis has localized a responsible gene (PPH1) to chromosome 2q33, mutations of which may result in defective function of the bone morphogenetic protein receptor type II (BMPRII) (13,14). The BMPRII gene encodes for a receptor member of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta superfamily. It is hypothesized that interruption of the BMP-mediated signaling pathway resulting from the mutations predisposes cells within small pulmonary arteries toward 20 Hargett and Tapson growth and proliferation in response to injury.
