An explicit model for the proton structure function is suggested, interpolating between low-Q2 vector meson dominance and Regge behavior, on the one hand, and the high-Q2 solution of the Gribov-Lipatov-Altarelli-Parisi evolution equation, on the other hand. The model is fitted to the experimental data in a wide range of the kinematical variables with emphasis on the low-x HERA data. The boundaries, transition region and interface between various regimes are quantified.
