24,25-(OH)2D3 regulates protein kinase C through two distinct phospholipid-dependent mechanisms.

We have previously shown that 24,25-(OH)2D3 plays a major role in resting zone (RC) chondrocyte differentiation and that this vitamin D metabolite regulates protein kinase C (PKC). The aim of the present study was to identify the signal transduction pathway used by 24,25-(OH)2D3 to stimulate PKC activation. Confluent, fourth passage RC cells from rat… CONTINUE READING
