Tom Weishaar examines how the methodology behind Mendelian randomization can determine direction of causality.
In a new animal model, researchers in France report on a detailed look at how and if vitamin D plays a role in the nervous system.
Researchers reveal molecular and genetic evidence that vitamin D benefits patients with multiple sclerosis.
When the human genome project mapped its first chromosome in 1999, scientists predicted the human genome would contain over 100,000 active genes.
We know that vitamin D controls up to 5% of the human genome. Researchers recently looked at a large number of genes before and after vitamin D supplementation.
Researchers studied the genes of 11 children with vitamin D deficiency comparing them to 11 matched controls.
Anywhere from 3% to 10% of the active human genome is directly or indirectly signaled by vitamin D, including genes with a role in depression.
New research suggests vitamin D is a powerful natural antioxidant and aids in DNA repair.
Dr Cannell reviews a paper covering the influence vitamin D has on DNA repair genes and its role in repairing DNA “double stranded breaks.”
