Mutational analysis of BMP15 and GDF9 as candidate genes for premature ovarian failure Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Mutational screening of the bone morphogenetic protein 15 (BMP15) and growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) genes in a population with premature ovarian failure (POF) identified no new mutations. However, three single nucleotide polymorphisms in the BMP15 gene, two in the 5' untranslated region (31T>G and 71C>G) and another in exon 1 (387G>A), were found to be common in both POF and control groups.
