CONTEXT Many factors influence the concentration of circulating testosterone and its primary binding protein, SHBG. However, little is known about the genetic contribution to their circulating concentrations in women, and their heritability in women is not well established. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to estimate the heritability of circulating total testosterone (TT), free testosterone (FT), and SHBG in women in families from the Framingham Heart Study. METHODS Women in the Framingham… CONTINUE READING
