The aims of this study were to establish the prevalence of the high bone mass (HBM) phenotype in a cohort of Spanish postmenapausal women (BARCOS); to determine whether any of the HBM cases carry LRP5 or DKK1 mutations; to test the hypothesis of an inverse correlation between the number of common variant risk alleles and HBM; and to characterize the expression of osteoblast-specific and Wnt pathway genes in primary osteoblast RNA samples from two HBM cases.</...

Biogenesis and function of microRNAs can be influenced by genetic variants in the pri-miRNA sequences leading to phenotype variability. The aim of this study was to identify osteoporosis-related SNPs by affecting the expression levels of mature microRNAs.The first approach was to perform an association analysis of putative functional SNPs located in pri-miRNA sequences of bone-related microRNAs with the lumbar spine and femoral neck (FN) bone mineral den...
