GWAS

This gene's human homologue has been identified in the following GWAS studies:

  • Bone mineral density: Genome-wide meta-analysis identifies 56 bone mineral density loci and reveals 14 loci associated with risk of fracture. (View Study)
  • Bone mineral density: Meta-analysis of genome-wide scans for total body BMD in children and adults reveals allelic heterogeneity and age-specific effects at the WNT16 locus. (View Study)
  • Cortical thickness: WNT16 influences bone mineral density, cortical bone thickness, bone strength, and osteoporotic fracture risk. (View Study)
