- Quantitative trait linkage analysis of longitudinal change in body weightAstrid Golla
Institut fur Medizinische Biometrie, Informatik und Epidemiologie, Sigmund Freud Strasse 25, 53105 Bonn, Universitat Bonn, Bonn, Germany
BMC Genet 4:S7. 2003..We conclude that the chromosome 8 region may harbor a gene acting on long-term body weight regulation, thereby contributing to the development of the metabolic syndrome...
- Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO): evidence for a susceptibility gene located on chromosome 18q21.3-18q22Astrid Golla
Abteilung Medizinische Genetik der Kinderklinik und Kinderpoliklinik im Dr von Haunerschen Kinderspital, Universitat Munchen, Munchen, Germany
Eur J Hum Genet 10:217-21. 2002..Mutation screening in RANK and the genes PIGN and KIAA1468 led to detection of two variants (one in RANK and one in PIGN), which are in linkage disequilibrium with the rare D18S60 allele, but not independently associated with CRMO...
