Identification of 8 alpha,25-dihydroxy-9,10-seco-4,6,10(19)-cholestatrien-3-one as a product of metabolism of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol by liver microsomes.

The ability of liver microsomes, sites of synthesis of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol, to further metabolize 25-hydroxycholecalciferol has been assessed. When liver microsomes were incubated with 25-hydroxycholecalciferol in the presence of cytosol, a metabolite was isolated that comigrated with 8 alpha,25-dihydroxy-9,10-seco-4,6,10(19)-cholestatrien-3- one in… CONTINUE READING
