Compact bones can still break easily
Key Words: heterozygous homozygous COLIA1 Sp1
Abstract: SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA--Irregularly placed studs can weaken a house's frame. A small change in a bone protein similarly disrupts the skeleton and dramatically reduces its strength, according to new research presented here 23 November 2003 at the Gerontological Society of America annual meeting. The results reveal that a characteristic other than density enfeebles bone.
