Genetic studies of disorders of calcium crystal deposition
Timms, A. E., Zhang, Y., Russell, R. G. G., & Brown, M. A. (2002) Genetic studies of disorders of calcium crystal deposition. Rheumatology, 41(7), pp. 725-729.
In summary, although many factors are likely to be involved in regulating calcification and ossification processes, studies of the causation of articular chondrocalcinosis and disorders of spinal ossification, such as DISH and OPLL, implicate control over inorganic pyrophosphate levels as being one of the most important factors in their aetiopathogenesis. The findings of these studies may prove relevant to other rheumatic diseases in which ectopic ossification occurs, such as AS.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
