Cloning and sequencing of the gene encoding the mouse vitamin D receptor

Gene. 1995 Jan 23;152(2):281-2. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(94)00735-b.


The mouse vitamin D receptor (VDR)-encoding cDNA was cloned and the coding regions were sequenced. Comparison of the amino-acid sequence to that of humans and rats revealed high homology in the DNA- and ligand-binding domains. Divergence appeared in the internal region between the two domains.
