The effect of a T‐C transition polymorphism at the translation initiation codon of the human vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene on the biological function of the encoded protein was investigated. Of 239 Japanese women volunteers subjected to genotype analysis for this polymorphism, 32 (13%) were genotype MM (the M allele is ATG at the putative translation start site), 75 (31%) were genotype mm (the m allele is ACG at the putative translation start site), and 132 (55%) were genotype Mm. The bone mineral density (BMD) in the lumbar spine (L2–L4) was determined for 110 healthy premenopausal women from the volunteers and was shown to be 12.0% greater (p < 0.05) for mm homozygotes than for MM homozygotes. Synthesis of the proteins by the M and m alleles from the cloned cDNAs in vitro and in transfected COS‐7 cells revealed them to have a size of 50 and 49.5 kD, respectively, as determined by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. This size difference is consistent with initiation of translation of the M allele‐encoded protein from an ATG codon located at nucleotides +10 to +12 in the conventional open reading frame. The extent of vitamin D–dependent transcriptional activation of a reporter construct under the control of a vitamin D response element in transfected HeLa cells was ∼1.7‐fold greater for the m type VDR than for the M type protein. These results suggest that the polymorphism at the translation start site of the VDR gene may modulate BMD in premenopausal Japanese women.
