Variants for PDLIM4 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDLIM4 Gene

Genetic variations in PDLIM4 may be correlated with bone mineral density (BMD). Low BMD is a risk factor for osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mineral density, disruption of bone microarchitecture, and the alteration of the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone. Osteoporotic bones are more at risk of fracture.
