Structure of the vitamin D receptor [40, 41]. Upper: LD blocks in Caucasians [14] where blocks "C" and "A" extend to both sides. In Africans block "C" is split into 3 parts, "C1", "C2" and "C3". Middle: Exon structure including several SNP variants examined in about 100 disease-association studies. Lower: Aligned protein domains, DNA binding, hinge and ligand binding region including phosphorylation sites.
