Army-funded effort examines androgen's role in bone loss

... cloned from rats as a promoter, Wiren was able to drive overexpression of the androgen receptor DNA in the skeleton and at a high level. "When we characterized how much of the receptor was present, it was four-fold higher. It's higher than what you usually have in bone, but at a level you'd find in the pr...
