Figure S1. Evolutionary conservation of theVDR gene. Analysis of the VDR gene including5′-2000 bp flanking transcriptional start and 3′-1000bp following final exon 9 were compared between human and mouse,rat and zebrafish.

Figure S2. VDR single nucleotidepolymorphism function. CD14+ monocytes of healthy individualshomozygous for the VDR GCT or AAC haplotype (BsmI,ApaI, TaqI order; GCT is frequent in the severeatopic dermatitis group, AAC in controls) were analysed exvivo or following calcitriol stimulation regarding VDR gene expression determined by quantitative polymerase chain reaction.
