Association between g.19163A>G and g.23298T>C genetic variants of the osteoprotegerin gene and bone mineral density in Chinese women.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Osteoporosis is a serious and common health issue of considerable complexity among postmenopausal women. The osteoprotegerin gene (OPG) is considered to play an important role in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. The objective of this study was to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the OPG gene and assess the association between bone… (More)
