The present study describes the appearance of high-affinity nuclear binding sites (receptors) for 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (soltriol) in organs that contribute to the blood-brain barrier such as choroid plexus and ependyma in the Djungarian hamster Phodopus sungorus, C57BL/6J mice, and vitamin D-deficient Sprague-Dawley rats. Using autoradiography, after injection of 1,25[(3)H]dihydroxyvitamin D(3) specific nuclear neuronal labeling is seen in all species in certain regions of the brain… CONTINUE READING
