Prevalence of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms FokI and BsmI in Brazilian individuals with type 1 diabetes and their relation to beta-cell autoimmunity and to remaining beta-cell function.

Abstract

The effect of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms on susceptibility to type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is heterogeneous. Genetic factors may also influence the residual beta-cell function. We studied the frequency of VDR FokI (rs10735810) and BsmI (rs154410) polymorphisms in T1DM and their relationship to beta-cell autoimmunity and residual beta-cell… (More)
