A rapidly acting metabolite of vitamin D3.


A vitamin D(3) metabolite in intestine more polar than 25-hydroxy-vitamin D(3)(25-OH D(3)) has been detected by countercurrent distribution. The intestinal metabolite is found also after administration of labeled hydroxy D(3), indicating that it arises from vitamin D(3) via the intermediate 25-hydroxy derivative. The more polar metabolite is localized in… (More)
