Correlation between secosteroid-induced vitamin D receptor activity in melanoma cells and computer-modeled receptor binding strength.


To define the interaction of novel secosteroids produced by the action of cytochrome P450scc with vitamin D receptor (VDR), we used a human melanoma line overexpressing VDR fused with enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) and tested the ligand induced translocation of VDR from the cytoplasm to the nucleus. Hydroxyderivatives of vitamin D(3) with a full… (More)
