Cytochromes P450c1 and P450c24 are regulated hydroxylase enzymes that direct the bioactivation and metabolic degradation of vitamin D. The bioactivation pathway is regulated by cytochrome P450c1 through its synthesis of 1alpha,25(OH)(2)D(3), the hormonally active form of the vitamin. Expression of the P450c1 gene is regulated at the transcription level.(More)
Recently, 25-hydroxyvitamin D3-24-hydroxylase (CYP24A1) has been shown to catalyze not only hydroxylation at C-24 but also hydroxylations at C-23 and C-26 of the secosteroid hormone 1alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1alpha,25(OH)2D3). It remains to be determined whether CYP24A1 has the ability to hydroxylate vitamin D3 compounds at C-25.(More)
