The physiologically active form of vitamin D. It is formed primarily in the kidney by enzymatic hydroxylation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Its production is stimulated by low blood calcium levels and parathyroid hormone. Calcitriol increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and in concert with parathyroid hormone increases bone resorption.
Proteins, usually found in the cytoplasm, that specifically bind calcitriol, migrate to the nucleus, and regulate transcription of specific segments of DNA with the participation of D receptor interacting proteins (called DRIP). Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidney to calcitriol and ultimately acts through these receptors.
A vitamin that includes both CHOLECALCIFEROLS and ERGOCALCIFEROLS, which have the common effect of preventing or curing RICKETS in animals. It can also be viewed as a hormone since it can be formed in SKIN by action of ULTRAVIOLET RAYS upon the precursors, 7-dehydrocholesterol and ERGOSTEROL, and acts on VITAMIN D RECEPTORS to regulate CALCIUM in opposition to PARATHYROID HORMONE.
Agents that increase calcium influx into calcium channels of excitable tissues. This causes vasoconstriction in VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE and/or CARDIAC MUSCLE cells as well as stimulation of insulin release from pancreatic islets. Therefore, tissue-selective calcium agonists have the potential to combat cardiac failure and endocrinological disorders. They have been used primarily in experimental studies in cell and tissue culture.
Abnormally elevated PARATHYROID HORMONE secretion as a response to HYPOCALCEMIA. It is caused by chronic KIDNEY FAILURE or other abnormalities in the controls of bone and mineral metabolism, leading to various BONE DISEASES, such as RENAL OSTEODYSTROPHY.
A polypeptide hormone (84 amino acid residues) secreted by the PARATHYROID GLANDS which performs the essential role of maintaining intracellular CALCIUM levels in the body. Parathyroid hormone increases intracellular calcium by promoting the release of CALCIUM from BONE, increases the intestinal absorption of calcium, increases the renal tubular reabsorption of calcium, and increases the renal excretion of phosphates.
Organic substances that are required in small amounts for maintenance and growth, but which cannot be manufactured by the human body.
Any codon that signals the termination of genetic translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC). PEPTIDE TERMINATION FACTORS bind to the stop codon and trigger the hydrolysis of the aminoacyl bond connecting the completed polypeptide to the tRNA. Terminator codons do not specify amino acids.
A directed change in translational READING FRAMES that allows the production of a single protein from two or more OVERLAPPING GENES. The process is programmed by the nucleotide sequence of the MRNA and is sometimes also affected by the secondary or tertiary mRNA structure. It has been described mainly in VIRUSES (especially RETROVIRUSES); RETROTRANSPOSONS; and bacterial insertion elements but also in some cellular genes.

A family of small polypeptide growth factors that share several common features including a strong affinity for HEPARIN, and a central barrel-shaped core region of 140 amino acids that is highly homologous between family members. Although originally studied as proteins that stimulate the growth of fibroblasts this distinction is no longer a requirement for membership in the fibroblast growth factor family.
A single-chain polypeptide growth factor that plays a significant role in the process of WOUND HEALING and is a potent inducer of PHYSIOLOGIC ANGIOGENESIS. Several different forms of the human protein exist ranging from 18-24 kDa in size due to the use of alternative start sites within the fgf-2 gene. It has a 55 percent amino acid residue identity to FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 1 and has potent heparin-binding activity. The growth factor is an extremely potent inducer of DNA synthesis in a variety of cell types from mesoderm and neuroectoderm lineages. It was originally named basic fibroblast growth factor based upon its chemical properties and to distinguish it from acidic fibroblast growth factor (FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 1).
A fibroblast growth factor receptor that is found in two isoforms. One receptor isoform is found in the MESENCHYME and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. A second isoform of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 is found mainly in EPITHELIAL CELLS and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 7 and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 10. Mutation of the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 can result in craniosynostotic syndromes (e.g., APERT SYNDROME; and CROUZON SYNDROME).
A fibroblast growth factor receptor with specificity for FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTORS; HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; and NEURONAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES. Several variants of the receptor exist due to multiple ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of its mRNA. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 is a tyrosine kinase that transmits signals through the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM.
A fibroblast growth factor receptor that regulates CHONDROCYTE growth and CELL DIFFERENTIATION. Mutations in the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 have been associated with ACHONDROPLASIA; THANATOPHORIC DYSPLASIA and NEOPLASTIC CELL TRANSFORMATION.
Products derived from the nonenzymatic reaction of GLUCOSE and PROTEINS in vivo that exhibit a yellow-brown pigmentation and an ability to participate in protein-protein cross-linking.

The longer wavelengths (near-UV or biotic or vital rays) are necessary for the endogenous synthesis of vitamin D and are also called antirachitic rays; the shorter, ionizing wavelengths (far-UV or abiotic or extravital rays) are viricidal, bactericidal, mutagenic, and carcinogenic and are used as disinfectants.

Convergence of transforming growth factor-beta and vitamin D signaling pathways on SMAD transcriptional coactivators. (1/1642)

Cell proliferation and differentiation are regulated by growth regulatory factors such as transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and the liphophilic hormone vitamin D. TGF-beta causes activation of SMAD proteins acting as coactivators or transcription factors in the nucleus. Vitamin D controls transcription of target genes through the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Smad3, one of the SMAD proteins downstream in the TGF-beta signaling pathway, was found in mammalian cells to act as a coactivator specific for ligand-induced transactivation of VDR by forming a complex with a member of the steroid receptor coactivator-1 protein family in the nucleus. Thus, Smad3 may mediate cross-talk between vitamin D and TGF-beta signaling pathways.  (+info)

Transcriptional targets of the vitamin D3 receptor-mediating cell cycle arrest and differentiation. (2/1642)

We are exploring the mechanism of action of the hormonal form of the nutrient vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D3, and its cognate nuclear receptor at the level of gene control. In doing so, we have focused on a dual track as follows: 1) to define the vitamin D3 receptor (VDR) function and structure by examining its various actions at the molecular level; and 2) to isolate and characterize VDR target genes that might be playing key roles in mediating vitamin D growth suppression and differentiation in responsive cells, specifically, the elucidation of vitamin D target genes as they relate to myeloid differentiation. Here, we will summarize some of our recent results from both tracks because a detailed understanding of how VDR functions as a ligand-regulated transcription factor will allow us to study its actions on these newly discovered genes more effectively.  (+info)

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 induces differentiation of a retinoic acid-resistant acute promyelocytic leukemia cell line (UF-1) associated with expression of p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1). (3/1642)

Retinoic acid (RA) resistance is a serious problem for patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) who are receiving all-trans RA. However, the mechanisms and strategies to overcome RA resistance by APL cells are still unclear. The biologic effects of RA are mediated by two distinct families of transcriptional factors: RA receptors (RARs) and retinoid X receptors (RXRs). RXRs heterodimerize with 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] receptor (VDR), enabling their efficient transcriptional activation. The cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk) inhibitor p21(WAF1/CIP1) has a vitamin D3-responsive element (VDRE) in its promoter, and 1,25(OH)2D3 enhances the expression of p21(WAF1/CIP1) and induces differentiation of selected myeloid leukemic cell lines. We have recently established a novel APL cell line (UF-1) with features of RA resistance. 1,25(OH)2D3 can induce growth inhibition and G1 arrest of UF-1 cells, resulting in differentiation of these cells toward granulocytes. This 1, 25(OH)2D3-induced G1 arrest is enhanced by all-trans RA. Also, 1, 25(OH)2D3 (10(-10) to 10(-7) mol/L) in combination with RA markedly inhibits cellular proliferation in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Associated with these findings, the levels of p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1) mRNA and protein increased in these cells. Northern blot analysis showed that p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1) mRNA and protein increased in these cells. Northern blot analysis showed that p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1) transcripts were induced after 6 hours' exposure to 1,25(OH)2D3 and then decreased to basal levels over 48 hours. Western blot experiments showed that p21(WAF1/CIP1) protein levels increased and became detectable after 12 hours of 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment and induction of p27(KIP1) protein was much more gradual and sustained in UF-1 cells. Interestingly, the combination of 1, 25(OH)2D3 and RA markedly enhanced the levels of p27(KIP1) transcript and protein as compared with levels induced by 1, 25(OH)2D3 alone. In addition, exogenous p27(KIP1) expression can enhance the level of CD11b antigen in myeloid leukemic cells. In contrast, RA alone can induce G1 arrest of UF-1 cells; however, it did not result in an increase of p21(WAF1/CIP1) and p27(KIP1) transcript and protein expression in RA-resistant cells. Taken together, we conclude that 1,25(OH)2D3 induces increased expression of cdk inhibitors, which mediates a G1 arrest, and this may be associated with differentiation of RA-resistant UF-1 cells toward mature granulocytes.  (+info)

Vitamin D receptor 3'-untranslated region polymorphisms: lack of effect on mRNA stability. (4/1642)

Allelic variation at the 3'-end of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene has been associated with a 3-5-fold increased risk of developing prostate cancer and with differences in bone mineralization. This genetic diversity does not alter the VDR protein structurally, but instead may be a marker(s) of other, nearby polymorphisms that influence message stability or translation. The work reported here was instigated to identify additional VDR 3'-UTR polymorphisms that may have functional significance and to then test whether these genetic variants alter message stability. Initially, four novel, frequently occurring sequence variants were identified that associated with two common haplotypes that were described previously. These common sequence variants were not found within three message-destabilizing elements that we mapped within the 3'-UTR of the vitamin D receptor mRNA. Furthermore, the two VDR 3'-UTR haplotypes conferred an identical half-life on a heterologous beta-globin reporter gene, in an in vitro assay. We therefore conclude that common polymorphisms within the VDR 3'-UTR do not influence message stability.  (+info)

Vitamin D-dependent suppression of human atrial natriuretic peptide gene promoter activity requires heterodimer assembly. (5/1642)

Crystallographic structures of the ligand-binding domains for the retinoid X (RXR) and estrogen receptors have identified conserved surface residues that participate in dimer formation. Homologous regions have been identified in the human vitamin D receptor (hVDR). Mutating Lys-386 to Ala (K386A) in hVDR significantly reduced binding to glutathione S-transferase-RXRalpha in solution, whereas binding of an I384R/Q385R VDR mutant was almost undetectable. The K386A mutant formed heterodimers with RXRalpha on DR-3 (a direct repeat of AGGTCA spaced by three nucleotides), whereas the I384R/Q385R mutant completely eliminated heterodimer formation. Wild type hVDR effected a 3-fold induction of DR-3-dependent thymidine kinase-luciferase activity in cultured neonatal rat atrial myocytes, an effect that was increased to 8-9-fold by cotransfected hRXRalpha. Induction by K386A, in the presence or absence of RXRalpha, was only slightly lower than that seen with wild type VDR. On the other hand, I384R/Q385R alone displayed no stimulatory activity and less than 2-fold induction in the presence of hRXRalpha. Qualitatively similar findings were observed with the negative regulation of the human atrial natriuretic peptide gene promoter by these mutants. Collectively, these studies identify specific amino acids in hVDR that play a critical role in heterodimer formation and subsequent modulation of gene transcription.  (+info)

Identity between TRAP and SMCC complexes indicates novel pathways for the function of nuclear receptors and diverse mammalian activators. (6/1642)

The human thyroid hormone receptor-associated protein (TRAP) complex, an earlier described coactivator for nuclear receptors, and an SRB- and MED-containing cofactor complex (SMCC) that mediates activation by Gal4-p53 are shown to be virtually the same with respect to specific polypeptide subunits, coactivator functions, and mechanisms of action (activator interactions). In parallel with ligand-dependent interactions of nuclear receptors with the TRAP220 subunit, p53 and VP16 activation domains interact directly with a newly cloned TRAP80 subunit. These results indicate novel pathways for the function of nuclear receptors and other activators (p53 and VP16) through a common coactivator complex that is likely to target RNA polymerase II. Identification of the TRAP230 subunit as a previously predicted gene product also suggests a coactivator-related transcription defect in certain disease states.  (+info)

Vitamin D receptor alleles predict growth and bone density in girls. (7/1642)

OBJECTIVES: Polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor (VDR), collagen alpha I type I (Col I alpha I), and oestrogen receptor (ER) genes have been shown to account for some of the heritability of bone mineral density (BMD) in adults. This study examined this relation in prepubertal children. METHODS AND SUBJECTS: The relation between genotypes of VDR gene (Taq I, Bsm I, Fok I), Col I alpha I gene (Msc I), and ER gene (Pvu II) with areal BMD, volumetric BMD, and growth were examined in 114 (68 girls) healthy 7 year old, white children. RESULTS: The genotype of the VDR gene (Taq I) correlated with lumbar spine (L1-4) volumetric BMD in girls only, but at no other bone sites. In girls, VDR genotype affected areal BMD at all sites. After adjusting for height and weight, however, this effect was explained completely by the independent effect of the VDR genotype on growth. Girls with genotype TT, were 3.9 kg heavier and 4.1 cm taller than those with tt, but this relation was not present at birth. No relation was found between genotypes of the VDR gene (Fok I), Col I alpha I gene (Msc I), or ER gene (Pvu II) and BMD or growth variables. CONCLUSIONS: In prepubertal girls, VDR alleles contribute to lumbar spine volumetric BMD variance, but the areal BMD effect reflects the relation between areal BMD and growth. VDR alleles might affect postnatal growth regulation.  (+info)

Structure-function studies of new C-20 epimer pairs of vitamin D3 analogs. (8/1642)

A growing number of calcitriol (1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3) analogs have become available in recent years. Many of these analogs exhibit lower calcemic effects than calcitriol and inhibit cell proliferation and enhance cell differentation more efficiently than calcitriol. We have compared structure-function relationships of a series of new C-20 epimer (20-epi) vitamin D3 analogs with their natural C-20 counterparts. In human MG-63 osteosarcoma cells, quantification of cellular osteocalcin mRNA levels by Northern blot analysis and osteocalcin biosynthesis by radioimmunoassay indicated that most studied analogs at a concentration of 10 nm induced osteocalcin gene expression more efficiently than the parent compound, calcitriol. Interestingly, when the biological responses were compared with the binding affinities of the analogs to in-vitro translated human vitamin D receptor and with their ability to protect the receptor against partial proteolytic digestion, significant correlations were not observed. Further, molecular modelling of the compounds by energy minimization did not reveal marked differences in the three-dimensional structures of the analogs. These results suggest that higher than normal ligand binding affinity or 'natural' conformation of the ligand-receptor complex are not necessarily required for the 'superagonist' transactivation activity. The mechanism of action of the efficient analogs may involve stabilization and/or differential binding of transcriptional coactivators or transcription intermediary factors to the hVDR during transactivation.  (+info)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the possible association between vitamin D receptor genotype and bone mineral density in a large group of postmenopausal twins. DESIGN: Cross sectional twin study. SETTING: Twin population based in Britain. SUBJECTS: 95 dizygotic (non-identical) pairs of twins and 87 monozygotic (identical) pairs of twins aged 50-69 years, postmenopausal, and free of diseases affecting bone, recruited from a national register of twins and with a media campaign. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Bone mineral density measured at the hip, lumbar spine, forearm, and for the whole body by dual energy x ray absorptiometry in relation to differences in the vitamin D receptor genotype. RESULTS: At all sites the values of bone density among dizygotic twins were more similar in those of the same vitamin D receptor genotype than in those of differing genotype, and the values in the former were closer to the correlations seen in monozygotic twins.

Patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) are at higher risk of developing osteoporosis. Among the genetic factors related to die development of osteoporosis, a possible association between vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphism and bone mineral density (BMD) has been described in some populations. We characterized the VDR gene polymorphism in a healthy adult Brazilian population and in a group of patients with IDDM and correlated these findings with densitometric values in both groups. the Brazilian population is characterized by an important racial heterogeneity and therefore is considered an ethnically heterogeneous population. We recruited 94 healthy adult Brazilian volunteers (63 women and 31 men), mean (+/- SD) age 32.4 +/- 6.5 years (range 18-39 years), and 78 patients with IDDM (33 women and 45 men) diagnosed before 18 years of age, mean (+/- SD) age 23.3 +/- 5.5 years (range 18-39 years). VDR genotype was assessed by polymerase chain reaction amplification followed by ...
Graves' (GD) hyperthyroidism induces accelerated bone turnover that leads to decreased bone mineral density (BMD). The role of the VDR gene in predisposition to primary osteoporosis has been recognized. Recent studies show associations between the VDR gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to autoimmune diseases. Here we analyzed if VDR gene polymorphisms: BsmI, ApaI, TaqI, and FokI may predispose women with Graves' hyperthyroidism to BMD reduction or to disease development. The subjects were 75 premenopausal female Polish patients with GD and 163 healthy women. The genotyping was performed by the use of the restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis (RFLP). We studied the association of the VDR polymorphisms and their haplotypes with patients' BMD and also SNPs and haplotypes association with Graves' disease. We found a strong linkage disequilibrium for the BsmI, ApaI, and TaqI polymorphims that formed three most frequent haplotypes in Graves' women: baT (47.9%), ...
We conducted this study to examine the relationship between VDR expression and mutations in PIK3CA and KRAS in colorectal cancer. Accumulating evidence indicates a substantial role of vitamin D in prevention of various forms of human cancer (1, 2, 17, 36-38). A potential link between VDR and the PI3K-AKT or RAS-MAPK pathway has been suggested (17, 18). Thus, examining VDR in colorectal cancer may shed lights on biological mechanisms of vitamin D action and its failure. We have found that VDR overexpression in colorectal cancer is significantly associated with both PIK3CA and KRAS mutations independent of other clinical and molecular features. Our data support the hypothesis that the VDR pathway interacts with the PI3K-AKT and RAS-MAPK pathways in colonic neoplastic cells.. Our resource of a large number of colorectal cancers derived from the two prospective cohort studies has enabled us to precisely estimate the frequency of colorectal cancers with a specific molecular feature (such as VDR ...

Background In patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer, vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms and haplotypes are reported to be associated with survival. We hypothesized that a similar association would be observed in patients with head and neck squamous-cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Methods In a post-hoc analysis of our previous prospective cohort study, VDR polymorphisms including Cdx2 G/A (rs11568820), FokI C/T (rs10735810), BsmI A/G (rs1544410), ApaI G/T (rs7976091), and TaqI T/C (rs731236) were genotyped by sequencing in 204 consecutive patients with HNSCC who underwent tumor resection. Progression-free survival was compared between VDR polymorphisms using Kaplan-Meier survival curves with log-rank tests and Cox proportional hazard models adjusting for age, gender, smoking status, primary tumor sites, postoperative stages, existence of residual tumor, and postoperative treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Results During a median follow-up of 1,047 days, tumor progression and death

[online]. 2007, vol.59, n.1, pp.25-31. ISSN 0034-8376.. Introduction. Prostate cancer (PCa) is a worldwide health issue, because of its high incidence and mortality. Its etiology is complex and includes certain risk factors such as age, hormonal status, ethnic origin and family history of PCa. Genetic predisposition is proposed as a major risk factor and there are several controversial reports on the association of PCa and gene polymorphism such as the receptors of the androgen receptor (AR) and the vitamin D (VDR). Objective. To evaluate the CAG triplets repetitions in the first exon of the AR and polymorphisms in the restriction site Taql in the VDR in Mexicans with PCa. Material and methods. A total of 68 Mexicans with histopathological diagnosis of PCa and 48 healthy Mexican with normal prostate specific antigen and ...

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, but rates around the world vary greatly. Americans have the highest incidence rates in the world, 4 to 5 times those of Spain. The hypothesis of this thesis was that vitamin D metabolism is a factor in prostate cancer development and the aim was to examine differences in factors that modulate vitamin D metabolism between the US and Spain, specifically sunlight exposure and vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms. Through a search of papers that examined sunlight exposure and prevalence of VDR polymorphisms, we found that Spain had more ultraviolet exposure than the United States, but there was little difference in proportions of VDR polymorphisms between the two populations. TaqI, BsmI, and FokI polymorphisms of the VDR were studied. Proportions of TaqI and FokI were found to be equivalent between the two populations. The rates of BsmI polymorphisms were found to be statistically different, but the United States, not Spain, has higher ...
Polymorphisms in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene may be of etiological importance in determining cancer risk. The aim of this study was to assess the association between common VDR gene polymorphism
TY - JOUR. T1 - Using components of the vitamin D pathway to prevent and treat colon cancer. AU - Stubbins, Renee E.. AU - Hakeem, Aisha. AU - Núñez, Nomelí P.. PY - 2012/12. Y1 - 2012/12. N2 - The objective of this review was to analyze the components of vitamin D and their potential usefulness in preventing and treating colorectal cancer. The active form of vitamin D, 1α,25(OH2)D3, targets the wnt/β-catenin pathway by upregulating key tumor suppressor genes such as E-cadherin, which promotes an epithelial phenotype, but this is only possible when the vitamin D receptor (VDR) is present. Colorectal cell lines have shown that VDR expression levels decrease in the later stages of colon cancer. In colorectal cancers with low VDR expression, treatments to increase VDR expression could target alterations at the genomic and epigenomic levels by modulating transcription factors such as SNAIL1 and by utilizing histone deacetyltransferase inhibitors, respectively. Finally, epidemiological studies ...
1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25(OH)(2)D(3)), the biologically active metabolite of Vitamin D(3), not only regulates bone and calcium metabolism but also exerts other biological activities, including immunomodulation via the nuclear Vitamin D receptor expressed in antigen-presenting cells and activated T cells. This regulation is mediated through interference with nuclear transcription factors such as NF-AT and NF-kappaB or by direct interaction with Vitamin D responsive elements in the promoter regions of cytokine genes. Dendritic cells (DCs) are primary targets for the immunomodulatory activity of 1,25(OH)(2)D(3), as indicated by inhibited DC differentiation and maturation, leading to down-regulated expression of MHC-II, costimulatory molecules and IL-12. Moreover, 1,25(OH)(2)D(3) enhances IL-10 production and promotes DC apoptosis. Together, these effects of 1,25(OH)(2)D(3) inhibit DC-dependent T cell activation. Immunomodulation by 1,25(OH)(2)D(3) and its analogs in vivo has been ...

The Wnt-β-catenin pathway is aberrantly activated in most colon cancers. DICKKOPF-1 (DKK-1) gene encodes an extracellular Wnt inhibitor that blocks the formation of signalling receptor complexes at the plasma membrane. We report that 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3], the most active vitamin D metabolite, increases the level of DKK-1 RNA and protein in human SW480-ADH colon cancer cells. This effect is dose dependent, slow and depends on the presence of a transcription-competent nuclear vitamin D receptor (VDR). Accordingly, 1,25(OH)2D3 activates a 2300 bp fragment of the human DKK-1 gene promoter. Chromatin immunoprecipitation assays revealed that 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment induced a pattern of histone modifications which is compatible with transcriptionally active chromatin. DKK-1 is expressed at high level in colon cancer cell lines with a differentiated phenotype such as Caco-2 or HT-29. Exogenous expression of E-cadherin into SW480-ADH cells results in a strong adhesive phenotype and a ...
Vitamin D receptor (VDR) participates in multiple immune functions. Here, we determined whether VDR gene-sequence variations are associated with intersubject differences in the risk of acquiring human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection. We assessed this in 460 males exposed to HIV-1 by injection drug use (335 infected and 125 uninfected) and 124 seronegative healthy subjects. Multilocus logistic regression analysis revealed haplotypes for rs11568820, rs4516035, rs10735810, rs1544410, and rs17878969 polymorphisms showing association with protection to HIV-1 infection (odds ratio, 0.4 [95% confidence interval, 0.22-0.721; P = .0025), which remained significant after correction for multiple testing. We infer that VDR haplotypes might influence the risk of HIV-1 acquisition ...
Genome- and transcriptome-wide data has significantly increased the amount of available information about primary 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) target genes in cancer cell models, such as human THP-1 myelomonocytic leukemia cells. In this study, we investigated the genes G0S2, CDKN1A and MYC as master examples of primary vitamin D receptor (VDR) targets being involved in the control of cellular proliferation. The chromosomal domains of G0S2 and CDKN1A are 140-170 kb in size and contain one and three VDR binding sites, respectively. This is rather compact compared to the MYC locus that is 15 times larger and accommodates four VDR binding sites. All eight VDR binding sites were studied by chromatin immunoprecipitation in THP-1 cells. Interestingly, the site closest to the transcription start site of the down-regulated MYC gene showed 1,25(OH)2D3-dependent reduction of VDR binding and is not associated with open chromatin. Four of the other seven VDR binding regions contain a typical DR3-type VDR

We hypothesized that methylation of VDR may be population specific and that the combination of differential methylation and genetic variation may characterize tuberculosis (TB) predisposition. We use bisulfite conversion and/or pyrosequencing to analyze the methylation status of 17 CpGs of VDR and to genotype 7 SNPs in the 3 CpG Island (CpG island [CGI] 1060), including the commonly studied SNPs ApaI (rs7975232) and TaqI (rs731236 ...
19.70. Even though vitamins and supplements may seem completely natural and safe, that is not always the case for specific individuals. A standard multivitamin is okay for most people who take a supplement. Many supplements are advertised as being specially designed for men or for women or for certain age groups. Do sugar bear hair vitamins make hair shine, nails stronger, and help both to grow? Look for generic brands that contain the same amount of vitamins and minerals as the name brand. Recently, the association with vitamin b and pd is getting more and more attention. A few small clinical trials have tested the treatment effect of alpha-lipoic acid given either as a supplement or intravenously. However, some people benefit from taking a b-complex supplement. Can lysine, vitamin b-12, or other vitamins or minerals help prevent or reduce canker sores? Vitamin d modulates growth and differentiation of keratinocytes through binding to the nuclear vitamin d receptor (Vdr). As mentioned above, ...
1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 signals via the Vitamin D Receptor (VDR). Higher serum vitamin D is associated with thinner primary melanoma and better outcome, although a causal mechanism has not been established. As melanoma patients commonly avoid sun exposure, and consequent vitamin D deficiency might worsen outcomes, we interrogated 703 primary melanoma transcriptomes to understand the role of vitamin D-VDR signalling and replicated the findings in TCGA metastases. VDR expression was independently protective for melanoma death in both primary and metastatic disease. High tumor VDR expression was associated with upregulation of pathways mediating anti-tumor immunity and correspondingly with higher imputed immune cell scores and histologically detected tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs). High VDR expressing tumors had downregulation of proliferative pathways, notably Wnt/beta-catenin signaling. Deleterious low VDR levels resulted from promoter methylation and gene deletion in metastases. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Involvement of vitamin D receptor in the intestinal induction of human ABCB1. AU - Tachibana, Shuko. AU - Yoshinari, Kouichi. AU - Chikada, Tsubasa. AU - Toriyabe, Takayoshi. AU - Nagata, Kiyoshi. AU - Yamazoe, Yasushi. PY - 2009/8. Y1 - 2009/8. N2 - ABCB1 (P-glycoprotein) is an efflux transporter that limits the cellular uptake levels of various drugs in intestine, brain, and other tissues. The expression of human ABCB1 has recently been reported to be under the control of nuclear receptor NR1I subfamily members, pregnane X receptor (PXR, NR1I2) and constitutive androstane receptor (CAR, NR1I3). Here, we have investigated the involvement of another NR1I member, vitamin D receptor (VDR, NR1I1), in ABCB1 expression. In the human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line LS174T, which abundantly expresses VDR, both 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-VD3) and lithocholic acid (LCA) increased ABCB1 mRNA levels. Reporter gene assays in LS174T cells with constructs containing various lengths ...
We evaluated the role of VDR in the activation of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) in morphine-induced T cell loss. Morphine treated human T cells displayed down regulation of VDR and the activation of the RAS. On the other hand, a VDR agonist (EB1089) enhanced T cell VDR expression both under basal and morphine-stimulated states. Since T cells with silenced VDR displayed the activation of the RAS, whereas, activation of the VDR was associated with down regulation of the RAS, it appears that morphine-induced T cell RAS activation was dependent on the VDR status. Morphine also enhanced reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation in a dose dependent manner; however, this effect of morphine was inhibited by an opiate receptor antagonist, naltrexone. These findings confirmed the role of opiate receptors in morphine-induced ROS generation. Interestingly, the activation of VDR as well as blockade of Ang II (by losartan, an AT1 receptor blocker) also inhibited morphine-induced T cell ROS generation. ...

The CC genotype of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphism TaqI rs731236 has previously been associated with a higher risk of developing myopathy compared to TT carriers. However, the mechanistic role of this polymorphism in skeletal muscle is not well defined. The effects of vitamin D on patients genotyped for the VDR polymorphism TaqI rs731236, comparing CC and TT carriers were evaluated. Primary human myoblasts isolated from 4 CC carriers were compared with myoblasts isolated from four TT carriers and treated with vitamin D in vitro. A dose-dependent inhibitory effect on myoblast proliferation and differentiation was observed concurrent with modifications of key myogenic regulatory factors. RNA sequencing revealed a vitamin D dose-response gene signature enriched with a higher number of VDR-responsive elements (VDREs) per gene. Interestingly, the greater the expression of muscle differentiation markers in myoblasts, the more pronounced was the vitamin D-mediated response to suppress genes ...
Serum calcium levels are tightly controlled by an integrated hormone-controlled system that involves active vitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], which can elicit calcium mobilization from bone when intestinal calcium absorption is decreased. The skeletal adaptations, however, are still poorly characterized. To gain insight into these issues, we analyzed the consequences of specific vitamin D receptor (Vdr) inactivation in the intestine and in mature osteoblasts on calcium and bone homeostasis. We report here that decreased intestinal calcium absorption in intestine-specific Vdr knockout mice resulted in severely reduced skeletal calcium levels so as to ensure normal levels of calcium in the serum. Furthermore, increased 1,25(OH)2D levels not only stimulated bone turnover, leading to osteopenia, but also suppressed bone matrix mineralization. This resulted in extensive hyperosteoidosis, also surrounding the osteocytes, and hypomineralization of the entire bone cortex, which may have contributed to the ...
Depression has been linked to (lack of) sunlight exposure and raised intracellular calcium levels. In this pathway, the role of the vitamin D pathway in calcium signaling in depression is shown. Active 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol by multiple conversion steps. It associates with RXR and VDR in the nucleus, which stimulates transcription of VDR target genes, resulting in lower intracellular calcium levels. Less sunlight exposure results in lower 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 levels and therefore higher calcium levels ...
The vitamin D receptor gene encodes the nuclear hormone receptor for vitamin D3 and belongs to the family of trans-acting transcriptional regulatory factors and shows sequence similarity to the steroid and thyroid hormone receptors. Downstream targets of this nuclear hormone receptor are principally involved in mineral metabolism though the receptor regulates a variety of other metabolic pathways, such as those involved in the immune response and cancer. In light of evidence for promoter methylation of the vitamin D receptor in the control of the expression of this gene, we have designed methylation assays that cover many regions of this gene in order to determine its methylation profile in normal individuals, ovarian tumors and ovarian cell lines. We have isolated the DNA from ten tumor tissues and their adjacent normal tissue from four different tumor types; ovarian, breast, colon and cervical. By utilizing a combination of bisulfite sequencing, SNP genotyping, and expression analysis, we show ...

Here are some articles I found that illustrates 2 points - Firstly that there are other no pain no gain treatment protocols out there, in case anybody was doubting the wisdom of following MP. The term paradoxical pharmacology has been coined for these, and in one sense I think MP can join the list, after all it appears at first sight counter intuitive to make use of a VDR agonist (benicar) treatment when TH1 disease sufferers are already awash with a VDR agonist (1,25 D ...

2605 Background: Vitamin D receptors (VDR) are expressed on the surface of the epithelial ovarian cells and evidence from in vitro and animal models suggests an estrogen-dependent influence of VDR on female reproduction. We investigated the association of ovarian cancer risk with four polymorphisms in the VDR gene: the rs10735810 polymorphism (FokI) in the VDR promoter that alters the first start codon and three polymorphisms in the in 3 untranslated region, rs1544410 (BsmI), rs7975232 (ApaI) and rs731236 (TaqI), known to alter transcriptional activity and mRNA stability.. Methods:.Interviews and DNA samples were collected in a population-based case-control study of 313 women with epithelial ovarian carcinoma and 574 controls frequency-matched to cases on age and ethnicity. Genotyping was performed with the 5 nuclease discrimination assay. The associations of these genetic polymorphisms with ovarian carcinoma risk and their interaction with other hormone-related risk factors were studied using ...
P53 and its family members have been implicated in the direct regulation of the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Vitamin D- and p53-signaling pathways have a significant impact on spontaneous or carcinogen-induced malignant transformation of cells, with VDR and p53 representing important tumor suppressors. VDR and the p53/p63/p73 proteins all function typically as receptors or sensors that turn into transcriptional regulators upon stimulus, with the main difference being that the nuclear VDR is activated as a transcription factor after binding its naturally occurring ligand 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D with high affinity while the p53 family of transcription factors, mostly in the nucleoplasm, responds to a large number of alterations in cell homeostasis commonly referred to as stress. An increasing body of evidence now convincingly demonstrates a cross-talk between vitamin D- and p53-signaling that occurs at different levels, has genome-wide implications and that should be of high importance for many malignancies,
SNP in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene is associated with risk of lower respiratory infections. The influence of genetic variation in the vitamin D pathway resulting in susceptibility to upper respiratory infections (URI) has not been investigated. We evaluated the influence of thirty-three SNP in eleven vitamin D pathway genes (DBP, DHCR7, RXRA, CYP2R1, CYP27B1, CYP24A1, CYP3A4, CYP27A1, LRP2, CUBN and VDR) resulting in URI risk in 725 adults in London, UK, using an additive model with adjustment for potential confounders and correction for multiple comparisons. Significant associations in this cohort were investigated in a validation cohort of 737 children in Manchester, UK. In all, three SNP in VDR (rs4334089, rs11568820 and rs7970314) and one SNP in CYP3A4 (rs2740574) were associated with risk of URI in the discovery cohort after adjusting for potential confounders and correcting for multiple comparisons (adjusted incidence rate ratio per additional minor allele ≥1·15, Pfor trend ...
Abstract: DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Investigations in this proposal are focused on identifying the molecular basis for the ligand dependent and independent actions of the VDR, using the skin as a model system. Like humans with VDR mutations, VDR null mice develop alopecia. We have demonstrated that the ligand-independent actions of the VDR are required for hair follicle keratinocyte stem cell (KSC) function, normal hair cycling and canonical Wnt (cWnt) signaling in keratinocytes. Interfering with cWnt signaling also impairs KSC function. Studies examining the interactions of the VDR with effectors of canonical Wnt signaling demonstrate that the VDR interacts with Lef1 via its DNA binding domain and that the VDR interacting domain of Lef1 is independent of its ¿-catenin binding domain. We will examine the functional consequences of impairing VDR-Lef1 interactions in keratinocytes and determine if the interaction between these two proteins is direct, or involves additional factors. ...

Results: No significant differences were observed for the VDR FokI, VDR Tru9I, VDR TaqI,, PTH DraII, INSR NsiI, and INSR PmlI gene polymorphisms between the women with PCOS and controls. However, after adjustment for confounding factors, the VDR BsmI Bb genotype and the VDR ApaI Aa genotype were significantly under transmitted to the patients (p= 0.016; OR= 0.250; 95% CI= 0.081-0.769, and p= 0.017; OR= 0.260; 95% CI= 0.086-0.788, respectively). Furthermore, in the women with PCOS, insulin levels were lower in the participants with the INSR NsiI NN genotype compared with those with the Nn + nn genotypes (P= 0.045 ...
Abstract Aim: Serum osteocalcin was shown in a previous study on first trimester pregnant women to correlate with bone density and to distinguish between fast and slow bone losers. The objective of the present study is to examine whether serum osteocalcin is related to vitamin D receptor (VDR) BsmI polymorphism in pregnant women. Study design: We determined osteocalcin serum levels and VDR BsmI genotype in 97 healthy first trimester pregnant women consecutively recruited during six months. Results: BB (21%), Bb (38%) and bb (41%) genotypes showed similar osteocalcin serum levels. However, in primigravidas (ns38) the BB genotype was significantly associated with higher mean osteocalcin level (9.67 ng/mL) than the Bb (8.07 ng/mL) and the bb genotype (8.14 ng/mL), respectively (P-0.05). The VDR genotype was the only independent parameter to correlate with serum osteocalcin (P-0.05). Conclusion: Only primigravidas show in the first trimester a relation between the bone formation parameter serum ...
Purpose : To investigate the effects on Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) knockout and 1,25- and 24,25-dihyroxyvitamin D3 (Vit D3) on cultured mouse corneal epithelial cell proliferation and on the Vit D activating enzyme CYP27B1 and inactivating enzyme CYP24A1. We also examined effects of vitamin D on mouse corneal epithelial intracellular calcium levels. Methods : Cultured mouse corneal epithelial cell (MCEC) proliferation was measured by reduction of MTT, which corresponds to the living cell number and metabolic activity. Total RNA and protein were isolated from mouse corneas and cultured mouse primary corneal epithelial cells. Transcript levels of CYP24A1 and CYP27B1 were assessed by qPCR, and Western blotting was used to detect CYP24A1 and CYP27B1 protein levels. Corneal epithelial calcium levels were recorded in excised, ex vivo mouse corneas using the calcium-sensitive dye Cal-520® and multi-photon microscopy. Results : 24,25-Vit D3 (50 nM) significantly increased proliferation in corneal ...
The mechanism of action of calcitriol in the treatment of psoriasis is accounted for by their antiproliferative activity for keratinocytes and their stimulation of epidermal cell differentiation. The anticarcinogenic activity of the active form of Calcitriol appears to be correlated with cellular vitamin D receptor (VDR) levels. Vitamin D receptors belong to the superfamily of steroid-hormone zinc-finger receptors. VDRs selectively bind 1,25-(OH)2-D3 and retinoic acid X receptor (RXR) to form a heterodimeric complex that interacts with specific DNA sequences known as vitamin D-responsive elements. VDRs are ligand-activated transcription factors. The receptors activate or repress the transcription of target genes upon binding their respective ligands. It is thought that the anticarcinogenic effect of Calcitriol is mediated via VDRs in cancer cells. The immunomodulatory activity of calcitriol is thought to be mediated by vitamin D receptors (VDRs) which are expressed constitutively in monocytes ...

BACKGROUND: Chronic hepatitis C infection is a major cause of end-stage liver disease. Therapy outcome is influenced by 25-OH vitamin D deficiency. To further address this observation, our study investigates the impact of the vitamin D receptor (NR1I1) haplotype and combined effects of plasma vitamin D levels in a well-described cohort of hepatitis C patients. METHODS: A total of 155 chronic hepatitis C patients were recruited from the Swiss Hepatitis C Cohort Study for NR1I1 genotyping and plasma 25-OH vitamin D level measurement. NR1I1 genotype data and combined effects of plasma 25-OH vitamin D level were analysed regarding therapy response (sustained virological response). RESULTS: A strong association was observed between therapy non-response and the NR1I1 CCA (bAt) haplotype consisting of rs1544410 (BsmI) C, rs7975232 (ApaI) C and rs731236 (TaqI) A alleles. Of the HCV patients carrying the CCA haplotype, 50.3% were non-responders (odds ratio [OR] 1.69, 95% CI 1.07, 2.67; P=0.028). A ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Normal vitamin D receptor concentration and responsiveness to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 in skin fibroblasts from patients with absorptive hypercalciuria. AU - Zerwekh, J. E.. AU - Reed, B. Y.. AU - Heller, H. J.. AU - Gonzalez, G. B.. AU - Haussler, M. R.. AU - Pak, C. Y C. PY - 1998/1/1. Y1 - 1998/1/1. N2 - To evaluate whether there is an increase in vitamin D receptor (VDR) concentration which could raise intestinal calcium absorption in absorptive hypercalciuric (AH) patients and promote hypercalciuria, we measured VDR concentration and VDR mRNA levels in skin fibroblasts from 16 patients with AH and 17 age-matched normal subjects before and following a 16-hour incubation in the presence of 10-8 M 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3]. There were no significant differences in VDR concentration between normal subjects and AH patients in the basal state (30 ± 11 vs. 30 ± 15 ng/mg protein, respectively) or following 1,25(OH)2D3-mediated upregulation (43 ± 18 vs. 42 ± 16 ng/mg ...
In a 12-week randomized controlled trial ( double-blind study), based on data on serum 25(OH)D changes from other studies (35), to achieve 1 standard deviation difference in circulating 25(OH)D with two-sided alpha of 0.05 and a beta of 0.2 after a 12-week intervention period, the sample size was calculated 40 individuals per treatment group. Considering 3 polymorphic variant groups and one control group which receives plain yogurt drink, 160 subjects are needed. Allowing for 10% attrition over 12 weeks of intervention, a total of 180 subjects are required. In treatment groups, all patients receive 500 ml per day of low-fat (1%) Yogurt Drink fortified with approximately 500IU of vitamin D3 . Control group receives 500 ml per day of plain (unfortified) Yogurt Drink. Metabolic, inflammatory and oxidative stress markers are evaluated at the beginning and in the end of the interventional period ...
Vitamin D is produced in the skin upon sun-exposure or obtained through the diet. Vitamin D is hydroxylated to 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) in the liver and to the active form 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH) 2 D) in the kidneys. To exert its effect 1,25(OH) 2 D has to bind to the nuclear vitamin D receptor VDR. Lack of vitamin D leads to rickets in children and to osteomalacia in adults. 25(OH)D is used as a marker of a subjects vitamin D status. Low serum 25(OH)D levels are associated with a number of diseases, risk factors for disease and increased mortality ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Vitamin D receptor quantitation in human blood mononuclear cells in health and disease. AU - Zerwekh, J. E.. AU - Yu, X. P.. AU - Breslau, N. A.. AU - Manolagas, S.. AU - Pak, C. Y C. PY - 1993/10. Y1 - 1993/10. N2 - Vitamin D receptor (VDR) concentration was quantitated in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with absorptive hypercalciuria (AH) and patients with high 1,25(OH)2D3 due to acquired or transient disease states and the results compared to those in normal subjects. VDR concentration in resting cells was not different between the three groups and represented constitutive receptor expression of monocytes. Following activation with phytohemagglutinin, patients with hypercalcitriolemia demonstrated significantly greater VDR concentrations. Patients with AH demonstrated a normal value for the group, but 6 patients had significantly greater concentrations of VDR despite normal plasma 1,25(OH)2D3 in four of the patients. Proliferation, as assessed ...
The researchers explain that vitamin D intake and serum concentrations of its metabolites have been associated with a decreased risk of developing breast cancer. The vitamin plays a known role in controlling calcium levels and influences the differentiation of cells and so could play a part in preventing the runaway proliferation of cells characteristic with cancer.. Previous studies regarding the association between vitamin D and breast cancer have been inconsistent in their conclusions.. Chang-Claude and her colleagues have investigated variations in the gene encoding the vitamin D receptor protein. They found that there were no differences in the biomarker for vitamin D, 25-hydroxyvitamin D, between women with two well-known genetic variations, the polymorphisms FokI and TaqI, and two functional putative variants, VDR-5132 and Cdx2, in the gene for the receptor. Moreover, they found no relationship between the presence of these polymorphisms and overall risk of postmenopausal breast ...
In an unrelated vitamin D study, researchers have identified vitamin D receptors (VDR) on 2776 gene positions and also found 229 genes that were activated in response to vitamin D. Vitamin D receptors are proteins that become activated by vitamin D. Activated VDR can then attach to specific sites on DNA which result in the expression of certain gene traits and/or genetic products such as enzymes. VDR binding sites were densely populated near autoimmune and cancer associated genes which may imply the importance vitamin D can play in autoimmune disease and cancer prevention. ...
Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common type of bone cancer in children and adolescents. With the current treatment approaches, the survival rate is 60-70%. Therapies for treating OS have remained the same over the past thirty years. There is a need for developing more effective therapies, which can significantly improve the survival of the patients who do not respond well to current therapeutic strategies. Epidemiological evidence indicates impaired regulation of cell proliferation and survival appears to be a key event in the etiology of the disease. Previous in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (calcitriol or 1,25D) has significant antineoplastic activity by inhibiting cell proliferation and inducing differentiation and apoptosis in breast, prostate, colon, skin, and brain cancer. The molecular mechanisms for calcitriol-mediated cancer prevention are still unknown. In particular, the role of calcitriol in modulating OS needs to be investigated. The primary ...
The research team, which included scientists from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Stanford University, noted after vitamin D binds to the receptor, also blocks a protein called NFAT needed to turn on the gene. Without the gene on, levels of IL-17 fall. Vitamin D also does another job by turning on a gene that produces suppressive T cells to fight destructive IL-17-production that occurs elsewhere.. According to the authors, in mouse models with EAE, vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] diminishes paralysis and progression of the disease and reduces IL-17A-secreting CD4+ T cells in the periphery and central nervous system (CNS).. Identification of the vitamin D pathway could lead to new treatments not only for multiple sclerosis, but for other autoimmune diseases include type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and skin disorders. The authors concluded, Our results describe novel mechanisms and new concepts with regard to vitamin D and the immune system ...

Calcitriol Receptors: Proteins, usually found in the cytoplasm, that specifically bind calcitriol, migrate to the nucleus, and regulate transcription of specific segments of DNA with the participation of D receptor interacting proteins (called DRIP). Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidney to calcitriol and ultimately acts through these receptors.

Nuclear receptors are the central components of the complex signaling processes mediated by nuclear hormones. The specific interaction of a nuclear receptor, such as the VDR, with response elements of promoter regions determines which genes will be regulated by the respective nuclear hormone (i.e., in the case of VDR, which genes are primary VD-responding genes). The complex formation between VDR-RXR heterodimers and their specific VDREs is therefore a central molecular step in the specific activation of VD-responding genes. Investigation of the selective modulation of this complex formation on different types of VDREs by VDR ligands was therefore the subject of this study.. The selective biological profile of EB1089 [i.e., its potent antiproliferative potential combined with a reduced calcemic effect (Nayeri et al., 1995; Danielsson et al., 1997)] was associated with the higher selectivity (approximately 15-fold) of the analogs to activate IP9-type VDREs than DR3-type VDREs (Nayeri et al., ...
Results Clinical signs and symptoms of chronic arthritis were aggravated in hTNFtg mice lacking functional VDR signalling. Moreover, synovial inflammation was clearly increased in VDR−/−hTNFtg mice as compared to hTNFtg mice and was associated with an increased macrophage influx in inflamed joints. In vitro, VDR-deficient monocytes were proinflammatory and hyper-responsive to TNF stimulation associated with prolonged mitogen-activated protein kinase activation and cytokine secretion. Also, VDR−/− monocytes showed enhanced potential to differentiate into bone resorbing osteoclasts in vitro. In line, VDR−/−hTNFtg mice had significantly increased cartilage damage and synovial bone erosions.. ...

Meta-analysis is a statistical approach that combines the results of multiple scientific studies. Although many genetic studies have been conducted to discovery genetic risk factors for T1D, combining the results from these separated studies by using meta-analysis could lead to a higher statistical power and more robust point estimate. In this study, meta-analysis was performed on seven T1D case/control bio-sets extracted from four recent studies. T1D target genes from meta-analysis were sorted by gene score, which is based on the statistical significance and consistency of the gene across the queried bio-sets. Meta-analysis results suggested six top risk genes for T1D (Score ≥ 85), and four of them are novel according to a recently updated database T1D_GD. Further analyses were conducted to study the possible correlation between T1D and these six genes, with more efforts focused on the four novel ones.. Analysis using T1D_GD showed that the two known T1D target genes, HLA-DQB1 and OAS1, are ...
