Genetic variations in the Vitamin D receptor predict type 2 diabetes and myocardial infarction in a community-based population: The tromsø study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-23)
Background Though the associations between low serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels and health outcomes such as type 2 diabetes (T2D), myocardial infarction (MI), cancer, and mortality are well-studied, the effect of supplementation with vitamin D is uncertain. This may be related to genetic differences. Thus, rs7968585, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the vitamin D receptor ...
The DBP Phenotype Gc-1f/Gc-1f is associated with reduced risk of cancer. The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-18)
Background and Objective In addition to its role as a transport protein, the vitamin D binding protein (DBP) may also affect lipid metabolism, inflammation and carcinogenesis. There are three common variants of the DBP, Gc1s (1s), Gc1f (1f), Gc2 (2) that result in six common phenotypes (1s/1s, 1s/ 1f, 1s/2, 1f/1f, 1f/2, and 2/2). These phenotypes can be identified by genotyping for the two single ...
