Strong genetic correlations were observed between osteocalcin and several bone mineral densitometric traits. In addition, suggestive genetic correlations with densitometric traits were observed for leptin and sclerostin. Overall, the few strong and several suggestive genetic correlations point out the existence of a complex underlying genetic architecture for bone metabolism plasma phenotypes.

J Bone Miner Res June; 31(6):1167-1176 . doi: 10.1002/jbmr.2797. Epub 2016 Jan 28. In conclusion, our identification of a novel germline gain-of-function Gα11 mutation, Val340Met, causing ADH2 demonstrates the importance of the Gα11 C-terminal region for G-protein function and CaSR signal transduction.

Calcif Tissue Int. 2016 Jun;98(6):546-55. doi: 10.1007/s00223-015-0105-3. Epub 2016 Jan 9. The variability in values generated from Biomedica, R&D Systems and TECOmedical assays raises questions regarding the accuracy and specificity of the assays. Direct comparison of studies using different kits is not possible and great care should be given to measurement of sclerostin, with traceability […]

Osteoporos Int. 2016 Jun;27(6):1953-66. doi: 10.1007/s00198-015-3468-4. Epub 2016 Jan 18. Hip, whole body and femoral neck BMD were reduced to a statistically significant level in AN but not BN groups. The meta-regression was limited by the number of included studies and did not find any significant predictors. This meta-analysis confirms the association between low BMD […]

N Engl J Med. 2016 Jun 30;374(26):2553-62. doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa1509342. CONCLUSIONS: Our study showed that Pyle’s disease was caused by a deficiency of sFRP4, that cortical-bone and trabecular-bone homeostasis were governed by different mechanisms, and that sFRP4-mediated cross-regulation between Wnt and BMP signaling was critical for achieving proper cortical-bone thickness and stability.
