Follow up to genome wide linkage and admixture mapping studies implicates components of the extracellular matrix in susceptibility to and size of uterine fibroids

Friday, January 30, 2015
Follow-up genetic association mapping implicates variant members of the collagen gene family in the development of uterine fibroids and suggests a defective extracellular matrix as a potential mechanism of pathogenesis.

rs189037 a functional variant in ATM gene promoter is associated with idiopathic nonobstructive azoospermia

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
Our case–control study, involving 229 idiopathic nonobstructive azoospermia (INOA) patients and 236 fertile male controls, indicates that rs189037(G>A) in ATM gene increases INOA risk, possibly through affecting ATM expression.

Genetic variation in tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases as a risk factor for idiopathic recurrent spontaneous abortion

Friday, May 31, 2013
There were no statistically significant differences in the distribution of genotype and allele frequencies of tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases 1, 2, 3, and 4 gene polymorphisms between idiopathic recurrent spontaneous abortion couples and control subjects.
