Vitamin D deficiency affect gene activity and cause disease

a lack of vitamin D increases the risk of many diseases, but the underlying cause is not clear in the past. According to a new study shows that lack of vitamin D can directly influence the activity of more than 200 genes in the human genome, the genes associated with many diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.

researchers at Oxford University and other institutions in the new issue of the journal genome research, the report says, after entering human body activates a vitamin D by the name of the vitamin D receptor protein, this protein may combine with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). There are 2776 study found that the DNA chain for vitamin D receptor protein loci.
