Rare Variation and Remote Gene Regulation of Osteoporosis Related Phenotypes in Han Chinesse

2019-10-23 13:11:55 | BioPortfolio


Bone density is recognized as the most important factor to measure osteoporosis, and the prevalence of osteoporosis increases with age. Risk factors for osteoporosis include age, weight, exercise, diet, smoking and alcohol consumption. What's more, osteoporosis has a strong familial aggregation, and the genetic value of bone density is between 0.6 and 0.85. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct large-scale collection of population samples of osteoporosis fractures and relevant genetic studies.


From past linkage analysis and candidate gene association studies to genome-wide association studies and second-generation sequencing technologies, researchers have found hundreds of genes and SNPs associated with bone mineral density and osteoporosis fractures. However, current studies on osteoporosis and related phenotypes are mainly concentrated in the European and American populations, rare in Asia and other regions, and even less in the Chinese han population. It is one of the problems to be solved in this project whether the genes and SNP loci associated with these strengths can also be applied to han Chinese population due to the existence of racial differences. This project aims to collect the patients with primary osteoporosis and osteoporosis fracture in the Chinese han population through the orthopaedics department, and verify the identified osteoporosis susceptibility genes in the Chinese han population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.

An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

The collection, preparation, and distribution of news and related commentary and feature materials through such media as pamphlets, newsletters, newspapers, magazines, radio, motion pictures, television, and books. While originally applied to the reportage of current events in printed form, specifically newspapers, with the advent of radio and television the use of the term has broadened to include all printed and electronic communication dealing with current affairs.

Division of tissues by a high-frequency current applied locally with a metal instrument or needle. (Stedman, 25th ed)
