Vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphism may be a genetic factor affecting bone mineral density (BMD). This study examined the interaction of VDR genotype with the effect of an exercise intervention on bone measurements in UK postmenopausal women. 33 walkers, who completed 20.4 +/- 3.9 (mean +/- SD) min day-1 of brisk walking over 1 year, and 36 controls agreed to give DNA samples. BMD was measured at the lumbar spine, femoral neck and calcaneus by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and broadband… CONTINUE READING
