Epidemiological, molecular and genetic studies have indicated high serum vitamin D levels are associated with lower risk of several autoimmune diseases. The Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) binding sites in monocytes and dendritic cells (DCs) are more common in risk genes for diseases with latitude-dependence than in risk genes for other diseases. The transcription factor genes ZMIZ1 and IRF8 - risk genes for many of these diseases - have VDR binding peaks co-incident with the risk SNPs. We show these genes are responsive to vitamin D: ZMIZ1 expression increased and IRF8 expression decreased, and this response was affected by genotype in different cell subsets. The IL10/IL12 ratio in tolerogenic DCs increased with vitamin D. These data indicate that vitamin D regulation of ZMIZ1 and IRF8 in DCs and monocytes contribute to latitude-dependent autoimmune disease risk.
