BMD Values and GSTM3 Gene Polymorphisms in Combination with GSTT1/GSTM1 Genes: A Genetic Association Study in Slovenian Elderly

Gerontology, 02/22/2012

The results of study demonstrate the genetic association between detoxifying enzyme GSTM3 and BMD variation, suggesting that the Val224Ile polymorphism and 224Ile–insAGG haplotype could be used for further evaluation of the impact of GSTs gene polymorphisms on osteoporosis, using larger cohorts in searching for osteoporosis risk markers.
