Runx-2 gene expression is associated with age-related changes of bone mineral density in the healthy young-adult population
Journal of Bone and Mineral Metabolism, 08/20/2012
Zanatta M et al. – Peak bone mass (PBM) is reached earlier in females, Bone mineral density (BMD) becomes higher in males later in life, and BMD and PBM are strictly associated with Runx–2. In addition, PBMC should be considered an important source for gene expression analysis in bone diseases.
