The genetics of vitamin D – Oct 2018

Bone 126 (2019) 59-77


The study appears to ignore many of the genes which reduce the amount of Vitamin D in the blood which gets to the tissues

CYP27B1 category listing contains the following

The CYP27B1 gene activates Vitamin D in the Kidney,    Skin,    Lungs,    Brain,   Eyes   Breasts   etc.
CYtochrome P450 family 27 subfamily B member 1    = 25-Hydroxyvitamin D3 1-alpha-hydroxylase

Vitamin D blood test misses CYP27B1 and other genes

Vitamin D Binding Protein category listing has 161 items is mentioned in the study

Vitamin D Binding Protein (GC) gene can decrease the bio-available Vitamin D that can get to cells,

  • GC is not the only such gene - there are 3 others, all invisible to standard Vitamin D tests
  • The bio-available calculation does not notice the effect of GC, CYP27B1, CYP24A1, and VDR
  • The actual D getting to the cells is a function of measured D and all 4 genes
  • There is >2X increase in 8+ health problems if have poor VDBP (GC)
  • It appears that VDBP only blocks oral vitamin D,

Vitamin D plays an essential role in human health as it influences immune function, cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with numerous health outcomes, including bone disease, cancer, autoimmune disease, cardiovascular conditions and more. However, the causal role of vitamin D beyond its importance for bone health remains unclear and is under much debate.
Twin and familial studies from past decades have demonstrated a nontrivial heritability of circulating vitamin D concentrations.
Several large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered associations of GC, NADSYN1/ DHCR7, CYP2R1, CYP24A1, SEC23A, AMDHD1 with serum levels of vitamin D. A recent whole genome sequencing (WGS) study, combined with deep imputation of genome-wide genotyping, has identified a low-frequency synonymous coding variant at CYP2R1. Information on these genetic variants can be used as tools for downstream analysis such as Mendelian randomization. Here, we review the genetic determinants of circulating vitamin D levels by focusing on new findings from GWAS and WGS, as well as results from Mendelian randomization analyses conducted so far for vitamin D with various traits and diseases. The amount of variation in vitamin D explained by genetics is still small, and the putative causal relationship between vitamin D and other diseases remains to be demonstrated.
