Abstract


Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene is recognized as candidate gene for susceptibility to Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The goal of this study was to search the eventual association between VDR gene polymorphisms and T2DM in Moroccans patients. Materials and Methods: 176 patients with T2DM and 177 Healthy controls from the Moroccans population were recruited. Bsm-I(rs1544410), Fok-I(rs10735810) and Apa-I(rs7975232) SNPs of the VDR gene were determined PCR-RFLP. A Vitamin D level was determined using ELISA. Results: The prevalence of Vitamin D inadequancy is higher significantly in patients with T2DM than in the controls subjects. There was a strong association between fok-I polymorphisms with T2DM (OR = 0,35, 95% CI = 0.14

Author Keywords: Diabete type 2, polymorphism, VDR, vitamin D receptor Bsm-I, Fok-I, Apa-I.
