ORIGINAL ARTICLES Vitamin D receptor Gene polymorphisms and their relation to Bone Mineral Density in Egyptian osteoporotic patients 1
Journal of Applied Sciences Research
Objective: VDR gene polymorphisms and their functional significance and potential effects on disease susceptibility have been investigated. The present study was aimed to identify the genetic polymorphism of Vitamin D receptor in osteoporotic patients. Methods: Peripheral blood samples were obtained from 25 osteoporotic females and 25 healthy controls. All subjects were diagnosed by bone mineral density measurement. DNA was extracted and polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment lengthfatcat:qo5i5p4porc3fiirm5aqd6xe5m
