Vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphism has been associated with bone mineral density (BMD), but recent data indicate association to parameters of body constitution and growth. We investigated VDR gene polymorphism, defined by BsmI and TaqI, in 90 healthy Caucasian males and any relation with parameters of body constitution at birth, and to parameters of body constitution, BMD and bone area, at age 16.9 +/- 0.3 yr (mean +/- SD) and at age 19.2 +/- 0.7. Using PCR and the restriction enzyme BsmI… CONTINUE READING
