Experimental Factor Ontology (EFO) Information
Identifier EFO_0004696
Description
  • Is a quantification of sex hormone binding globulin. In men the test is used in when investigating testosterone deficiency. The SHBG glycoprotein binds to circulating estradiol and testosterone, low levels of SHBG may be implicated in breast cancer etiology.

PGS Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.
