Association of the osteoprotegerin gene polymorphisms with bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a recently discovered member of the tumour necrosis factor receptor superfamily. It plays a crucial role in the control of bone resorption and its gene could therefore be a good candidate gene for osteoporosis. The aim of our work was to find polymorphisms in the OPG gene and to investigate their possible contribution to… (More)
