Relationship of calpain-10 genotype to phenotypic features of polycystic ovary syndrome.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with an increased risk of impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes. Recent evidence suggests that variation in the gene encoding the cysteine protease calpain-10 influences susceptibility to type 2 diabetes. The present study was undertaken to determine whether variation in this gene is associated with… (More)
