Genetic susceptibility of postmenopausal osteoporosis on sulfide quinone reductase-like gene

Abstract

Summary Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a major health problem with important genetic factors in postmenopausal women. We explored the relationship between SQRDL and osteoporosis in a cohort of 1006 patients and 2027 controls from Han Chinese postmenopausal women. Our evidence supported the significant role of SQRDL in the etiology of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Introduction Postmenopausal osteoporosis (PMOP) is a metabolic bone disease leading to progressive bone loss and the deterioration of the bone microarchitecture. The sulfide-quinone reductase-like protein is an important enzyme regulating the cellular hydrogen sulfide levels, and it can regulate bone metabolism balance in postmenopausal women. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether SQRDL is associated with susceptibility to PMOP in the Han Chinese population. Methods A total of 3033 postmenopausal women, comprised of 1006 cases and 2027 controls, were recruited in the study. Twenty-two SNPs were selected for genotyping to evaluate the association of SQRDL gene with BMD and PMOP. Association analyses in both single marker and haplotype levels were performed for PMOP.
