To quantify differences in ecNOS expression according to the genotypes of the intron 4 VNTR and the E298A polymorphism, ecNOS and GAPDH mRNA were reverse-transcribed and amplified in the same tube (multiplex RT-PCR).
Department of Medicine, Helsinki University, Finland and co-author of the study commented "Our findings indicate that particular alleles and combinations of specific PTHrP VNTR alleles correlate with variability in peak bone mass in the Finnish male population and raise the possibility that this genotypic approach may serve as an important tool in identifying individuals with a genetic predisposition to low bone mass acquisition at a relatively young age and hence a higher risk for developing osteopenia and osteoporosis in later life.

The first clinical study conducted at the JGH on 19 male osteoporotic subjects had shown earlier that 16 out of 19 (84%) male subjects had at least one copy of the 252 bp allele in the VNTR region of their PTHrP gene.
