Polymorphism in the growth hormone gene, weight in infancy, and adult bone mass.

Abstract:

Epidemiological studies point to the importance of gene-environment interactions during early life as determinants of later osteoporosis and fracture. We examined associations between common single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human GH (GH1) gene and weight in infancy, adult bone mass and bone loss rates, and circulating GH profiles.
