The vitamin D receptor (VDR) mediates the physiological and pharmacological actions of 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) in bone and calcium metabolism, cellular growth and differentiation, and immunity. VDR also responds to secondary bile acids and belongs to the NR1I subfamily of the nuclear receptor superfamily, which regulates expression of xenobiotic… CONTINUE READING
