Genome-wide copy-number-variation study identified a susceptibility gene, UGT2B17, for osteoporosis



Genome-wide copy-number-variation study identified a susceptibility gene, UGT2B17, for osteoporosis



American Journal of Human Genetics 83(6): 663-674



Osteoporosis, a highly heritable disease, is characterized mainly by low bone-mineral density (BMD), poor bone geometry, and/or osteoporotic fractures (OF). Copy-number variation (CNV) has been shown to be associated with complex human diseases. The contribution of CNV to osteoporosis has not been determined yet.
