OBJECTIVE: To examine whether polymorphisms of the estrogen receptor (ER) α gene are associated with body fat distribution.DESIGN: Cross-sectional, epidemiological study of two single-nucleotide polymorphisms, a T → C (PvuII) and an A → G (XbaI), in the first intron of the ERα gene.SUBJECTS: A total of 2238 community-dwelling middle-aged and elderly Japanese population (age: 40–79 y).MEASUREMENTS: The ERα genotypes (by automated fluorescent allele-specific DNA primer assay system… Expand
Effect of an Estrogen Receptor-α Intron 4 Polymorphism on Fat Mass in 11-Year-Old Children
TLDR
Total body fat mass was reduced by 6% in children with TA/AA genotypes, and risk of being overweight was decreased by 20%. Expand
Sex-specific association between estrogen receptor-alpha gene variation and measures of adiposity: the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
Polymorphisms in ESR1 are associated with measures of adiposity in men, and these associations further support the hypothesis that the intron 1 region of E SR1 influences phenotypes important for cardiovascular risk. Expand
Estrogen receptor 1 gene polymorphisms and decreased risk of obesity in women.
TLDR
The rs2234693 C allele of ESR1 and its associated genotypes and haplotypes were inversely and consistently associated with obesity in white postmenopausal women. Expand
Estrogen receptor α gene relationship with peak bone mass and body mass index in Chinese nuclear families
TLDR
The study does not support an association of the ER-α gene with BMD and BMI in the Chinese population, and found no association or linkage between any of the three studied polymorphisms and the long-range haplotypes of theER- α gene and BMI. Expand
Estrogen receptor α is not a candidate gene for metabolic syndrome in Caucasian elderly subjects.
TLDR
Genetic variants in ERα were not associated with metabolic syndrome or its components, in a group of 250 Lebanese Caucasian elderly participants, a group with a high prevalence of metabolic syndrome. Expand
Estrogen Receptor-Alpha Gene Polymorphisms and Body Composition in Children and Adolescents
TLDR
It is suggested that non-carriers of this polymorphism are likely to be more vulnerable to fat accumulation in today’s obesity promoting environment, than carriers. Expand
Association between VDR and ESR1 gene polymorphisms with bone and obesity phenotypes in Chinese male nuclear families
TLDR
Findings suggested that the VDR and ESR1 genes are quantitative trait loci (QTL) underlying fat mass variation in young Chinese men. Expand
Estrogen Receptor 1 (ESR1) Gene Polymorphisms and Obesity Phenotypes in a Population of Young Adults
TLDR
The results suggest that polymorphisms of the ESR1 gene do not contribute significantly to the genetic risk for obesity phenotypes in a population of young Caucasian adults. Expand
Estrogen receptor alpha gene polymorphisms are associated with type 2 diabetes and fasting glucose in male subjects
TLDR
The results suggest that the ER1 polymorphisms might associate with T2D and fasting glucose among Iranian male subjects. Expand
Association analysis of genetic polymorphisms and potential interaction of the osteocalcin (BGP) and ER-α genes with body mass index (BMI) in premenopausal Chinese women
TLDR
The HindIII polymorphism of the BGP gene, but not the PvuII polymorphisms of the ER-alpha gene or their potential interaction, was associated with BMI in premenopausal Chinese women. Expand

Association of bone mineral density with polymorphism of the estrogen receptor gene
TLDR
It is suggested that some variation of the ER gene linked to these RFLPs is associated with low BMD and that this at least partly explains the cause of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Japanese women. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between PvuII, XbaI, and dinucleotide (TA)n repeat polymorphisms of the estrogen receptor α (ER‐α) gene and BMD in a study of women from northeast Scotland concludes that polymorphism of the ER‐α gene are significantly related to B MD in this population and that this association is dependent on the Px haplotype.

Estrogen receptor gene polymorphism is related to bone density and height during late puberty and at attainment of peak bone density in young men. Expand

TLDR
Polymorphisms of the VDR/ER receptor genes might play a role in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes by influencing the secretory capacity of beta-cells through influencing the distribution of genotypes in the study groups. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that genetic variation at the ER locus may be associated with some determinants for BMD and bone metabolism in postmenopausal women. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest that genetic variation at the ERbeta locus may be associated with some determinants for BMD and the possible involvements of this polymorphism in the cause of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Japanese women. Expand

TLDR
In this large population sample the (TA)(n) dinucleotide repeat polymorphism at the 5' end of the ERalpha gene accounts for part of the heritable component of BMD and might prove useful in the prediction of vertebral fracture risk in postmenopausal osteoporosis. Expand
