Association between TNFRSF1B polymorphisms and bone mineral density, bone loss and fracture


The TNFRSF1B gene, which encodes the p75 TNF receptor, is a strong functional and positional candidate gene for susceptibility to osteoporosis. In a previous study, we reported that polymorphic variation in the 3’ untranslated region of TNFRSF1B was associated with femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) in a population-based cohort of Scottish women.
