1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 differentially regulates the production of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and IGF-binding protein-4 in mouse osteoblasts.


1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25-(OH)2D3] induces differentiation and inhibits proliferation in many cell types including bone cells. These effects may be mediated by the modulation of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) regulatory system. Therefore we investigated the effects of 1,25-(OH)2D3 on transcript and protein levels of both IGF-I and IGF binding… (More)
