G alpha subunit is present in the testes, but not in other organs, due to a gene mutation. This mutation affects the production of g alpha subunit, which causes a disturbance in the activity of the hormone testosterone.

G alpha subunit is a protein that plays a role in intracellular signaling by coupling membrane-bound receptors to intracellular effector proteins. The presence or absence of G alpha subunit in different tissues may be due to tissue-specific expression of the gene encoding this protein. In the case of your patient, it is possible that the gene encoding G alpha subunit is expressed in the testes but not in the thyroid or parathyroid. This could be due to differences in the regulatory elements controlling gene expression in these tissues. Alternatively, it is possible that the G alpha subunit protein is present in all these tissues but at different levels or in different isoforms. Further investigation would be necessary to determine the exact reason for the observed tissue-specific expression pattern.
