The biological activity of two novel 14-epi-analogues of 1,25(OH)2D3, 19-nor-14-epi-23-yne-1,25(OH)2D3 (TX 522) and 19-nor-14,20-bisepi-23-yne-1,25(OH)2D3 (TX 527), is described. Both analogues were at least 10 times more potent than 1,25(OH)2D3 in inhibiting in vitro cell proliferation and had much lower in vivo calcemic effects than 1,25(OH)2D3. Treatment(More)
1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D is a key calcium-regulating hormone but also displays potent differentiating and antiproliferative activities on many cell types. The structural requirements of this secosteroid hormone have been extensively studied for the A-ring and side chain, whereas relatively little is known about the requirements of the natural CD-ring(More)
