Both genes and the environment contribute to PCOS. Obesity, exacerbated by poor dietary choices and physical inactivity, worsens PCOS in susceptible individuals. The role of other environmental modifiers such as infectious agents or toxins are speculative. Phenotype confusion has characterized genetic studies of PCOS. Although several loci have been proposed as PCOS genes including CYP11A, the insulin gene, the follistatin gene, and a region near the insulin receptor, the evidence supporting… Expand
[Role of genetic and environmental factors in the development of polycystic ovary syndrome].
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic and environmental factors play a role in the development of polycystic ovary syndrome and when the authors are able to identify and then modify environmental determinants, then the health of those patients who are predisposed to disease development due to genotype or previous environmental effects will be safeguarded better.

Identifying genes associated with the development of human polycystic ovary syndrome
  • S. Saddick

TLDR
The present study has provided a comprehensive summary of the impact of polymorphisms among the common androgen-related genes to govern the genetic predisposition. Expand
Polymorphisms and haplotypes of insulin-like factor 3 gene are associated with risk of polycystic ovary syndrome in Indian women.
TLDR
The rs6523 polymorphism and AGAG haplotype of INSL3 showed significant association with increased risk of PCOS and influenced metabolic and hyperandrogenemia related parameters in both controls and PCOS women. Expand
DNA Methylation in the Pathogenesis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
TLDR
This review aims to provide an overview of current research focused on DNA methylation and PCOS, as well as discuss the perspectives regarding this topic. Expand
Insulin resistance in polycystic ovary syndrome: maker or marker?
TLDR
Tissue-specific defects in insulin signaling have been described, and different tissues contribute to insulin resistance differently in PCOS, which may benefit from greater insight into the mechanisms of the complex inter-relationship between insulin resistance and PCOS. Expand
Inositols’ Importance in the Improvement of the Endocrine–Metabolic Profile in PCOS
TLDR
The aim of this review is to present the effectiveness of MI and DCI treatment for PCOS symptoms, and is focused on analyzing the use of inositols, taking into account their physiological properties, together with the mechanism of individual PCOS symptom formation. Expand
STUDY OF PCOS AND AMH IN INFERTILE FEMALE
Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. It is acquiring a proportion of global epidemic which affects male and female equally. Some of theExpand
Genotype-independent association between vitamin D deficiency and polycystic ovarian syndrome in Lahore, Pakistan
TLDR
A strong and independent association between vitamin D deficiency and risk of PCOS in Pakistan, that was not modified by genetic variation in the vitamin D pathway is reported. Expand
Investigation of the FSHR, CYP11, and INSR Mutations and Polymorphisms in Iranian Infertile Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
TLDR
The data showed that the polymorphisms of FSHR were significantly associated with PCOS in Iranian infertile women and further studies with larger sample sizes are needed to explore the strength of the association. Expand

Allelic variants of the follistatin gene in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that contributions to the etiology of PCOS from the follistatin gene, if any, are likely to be small. Expand
Association of the steroid synthesis gene CYP11a with polycystic ovary syndrome and hyperandrogenism.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that variation in CYP11a may play an important role in the aetiology of hyperandrogenaemia which is a common characteristic of polycystic ovary syndrome. Expand
Leptin and its association with polycystic ovary syndrome: a twin study
TLDR
It was concluded that the incidence of PCOS is high among twins, and that leptin is likely to be genetically determined, although the effect of environmental factors cannot be denied. Expand
A twin study of polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
This study suggests that PCOS is not the result of a single autosomal genetic defect, but rather environmental factors, perhaps both intrauterine and extrauterine, are involved in the pathogenesis of this disorder or that PCos may be an X-linked disorder or the resultof polygenic factors. Expand
Large-scale analysis of the relationship between CYP11A promoter variation, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and serum testosterone.
TLDR
Two studies indicate that the strength of, and indeed the existence of, associations between CYP11A promoter variation and androgen-related phenotypes has been substantially overestimated in previous studies. Expand
Candidate gene region for polycystic ovary syndrome on chromosome 19p13.2.
TLDR
The present analysis suggests that a PCOS susceptibility locus maps very close to D19S884, and additional studies that systematically characterize DNA sequence variation in the immediate area of D 19S884 are required to identify the PCos susceptibility variant. Expand
Thirty-seven candidate genes for polycystic ovary syndrome: strongest evidence for linkage is with follistatin.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 1999
TLDR
This study shows how a systematic screen of candidate genes can provide strong evidence for genetic linkage in complex diseases and can identify those genes that should have high (or low) priority for further study. Expand
Developmental origin of polycystic ovary syndrome - a hypothesis.
TLDR
It is proposed that the clinical and biochemical features of PCOS can arise as a consequence of genetically determined hypersecretion of androgens by the ovary during, or very likely long before, puberty, and a unifying, 'linear' model is suggested to explain the aetiology of the heterogeneous phenotype. Expand
Evidence for a genetic basis for hyperandrogenemia in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
There is familial aggregation of hyperandrogenemia (with or without oligomenorrhea) in PCOS kindreds, and it is proposed that hyper androgenemia be used to assign affected status in linkage studies designed to identify PCOS genes. Expand
Relationship of calpain-10 genotype to phenotypic features of polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
In addition to its association with insulin levels in African-Americans, the 112/121-haplotype combination was associated with an approximate 2-fold increase in risk of PCOS in both African-American and whites. Expand
