Studies on Calciferol Metabolism


The administration of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) (CC) to rachitic chicks results in the production of two major polar metabolites, 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OH-CC) and 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25-diOH-CC), and a number of other minor metabolites. Eighteen hours after a physiological dose (0.65 mnoles) of radioactive cholecalciferol, 80% of the… (More)
