Vitamin D receptor alleles bone mineral density and turnover in postmenopausal osteoporotic and healthy women Authors:
Publisher and Date:(KARGER, 2004)Objective: Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and bone metabolic markers were investigated as potential genetic markers for osteoporosis in postmenopausal Turkish women. The relationship between their VDR gene polymorphisms and bone states was determined. Materials and Methods: Restriction fragment length polymorphisms at the VDR gene locus (i.e. for BsmI ApaI and TaqI) was investigated in 75 postmenopausal osteoporotic (53.16+/-1.31 years) and 66 healthy (52.62+/-1.69 years) Turkish women ...
