Yep, when your backlinks are decreased then it affects your PR. Google consider backlinks while giving PR. So when you get high quality backlinks, then those links counts more as compared with other backlinks. When those high quality backlinks are decreased then it affect on PR.

Vistadivine is correct, google only measures importance on the quality backlinks not the ones that do not have relevance. If your quality links decrease, then your PR might suffer. If its just the general links, then your PR will be fine!

Our backlinks dropped from 75 to 46 on the rescent google backlinks update, but our PR is still 4. So maybe backlinks don't effect the pagerank.
