BACKGROUND AND AIMS Osteoporosis leads to high fracture risk and evidence suggests that genetic factors play an important role in this disease. The aim was to evaluate the association of two(More)
The enzyme steroid sulfatase (STS) hydrolyses 3-beta-hydroxysteroid sulfates. The female-male STS activity ratio is 1.04-1.7:1 in several cell lines in adults and reaches 2:1 in prepubertal subjects.(More)
