Molecular Link between Vitamin D and Cancer Prevention

  title={Molecular Link between Vitamin D and Cancer Prevention},
  author={Meis Moukayed and William B Grant},
The metabolite of vitamin D, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D₃ (also known as calcitriol), is a biologically active molecule required to maintain the physiological functions of several target tissues in the human body from conception to adulthood. Its molecular mode of action ranges from immediate nongenomic responses to longer term mechanisms that exert persistent genomic effects. The genomic mechanisms of vitamin D action rely on cross talk between 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D₃ signaling pathways and… CONTINUE READING
