Magnesium gene explained

Magnesium, another mineral, is a player in key cellular processes such as nucleic acid synthesis. An imbalance has consequences: blood (serum) magnesium levels have previously been linked to chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and osteoporosis. While magnesium levels are maintained through diet, the concentration of magnesium in a person's blood is determined partially (around 30%) by genes.

Here, investigators report that six loci in or around six specific genes were linked to both blood magnesium levels and clinically defined magnesium deficiency. Learn more here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20700443
