Vitamin D Biology. Vitamin D can be obtained via endogenous synthesis upon UV exposure to the skin, or it can be consumed through the diet or supplements().After vitamin D enters circulation, it is hydroxylated in the liver to form 25(OH)D(), the most frequently used biomarker of vitamin D status in clinical settings and epidemiological studies.. Concentrations of 25(OH)D account for Cited by: Action of Warfarin and Other Vitamin K Antagonists. Vitamin K antagonists were first identified by K. P. Link while he was investigating a hemorrhagic disease in cattle. The compound responsible for the hemorrhagic disease, a product of microbial metabolism (spoiling) of sweet clover, was identified as 3,3′-methyl-bis(hydroxycoumarin). Mechanism of action. These drugs deplete the active form of the vitamin by inhibiting the enzyme vitamin K epoxide reductase and thus the recycling of the inactive vitamin K epoxide back to the active reduced form of vitamin K. The drugs are structurally similar to vitamin K and act as competitive inhibitors of the enzyme. The term "vitamin K antagonist" is a misnomer, as the . The hormonal metabolite of vitamin D, 1α,dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25D), initiates biological responses via binding to the vitamin D receptor (VDR). When occupied by 1,25D, VDR interacts with the retinoid X receptor (RXR) to form a heterodimer that binds to vitamin D responsive elements in the region of genes directly controlled by 1,25D. By recruiting Cited by:

Haussler et al.: Molecular Mechanisms of Vitamin D Action vitamin D endocrine system is elegantly governed by feedback controls of vitamin D bioactivation that interpret. pacity to clear vitamin D metabolites from the body. Because free, not total, 1,25(OH)2D is functional in vivo, a probable mechanism for the toxicity of vitamin D is that high 25(OH)D concentrations will cause both excessive synthesis of 1,25(OH)2D and, together with vitamin D and its other metabolites, cause dis-. The vitamin D system is unique in that distinct calcium homeostatic functions and cell growth regulatory activities are mediated through a single ligand, calcitriol, acting through a specific receptor exhibiting ubiquitous tissue expression, the vitamin D receptor (VDR). The VDR is a member of a superfamily of nuclear steroid hormone receptors which regulate gene Cited by: Abstract. The biologically active metabolite of vitamin D, 1,dihydroxyvitamin D 3 (1,25(OH) 2 D 3) is a secosteroid whose genomic mechanism of action is similar to that of other steroid hormones and is mediated by stereospecific interaction of 1,25(OH) 2 D 3 with the vitamin D receptor (VDR) which heterodimerizes with the retinoid X receptor (RXR). After interaction .
