A. Effects of 1,25 Vitamin D on T cells include suppression of T cell proliferation, a shift from Th1 to a Th2 development, inhibition of Th17 cell development and facilitation of T regulatory cells. B. Effects of 1,25 Vitamin D on monocytes and dendric cells include inhibition of inflammatory cytokine production by monocytes and inhibition of dendritic cell differentiation and maturation.

Figure 2. From: Vitamin D and the Immune System.

A. Relative expression of 2 IFNα inducible genes, Mx1 and Ifit1 in SLE patients with vitamin D deficiency (≤ 20ng/ml) and sufficiency (>20ng/ml). Relative expression of these genes was determined by RTPCR on PBMCs from clinically stable SLE patients. Expression of interferon inducible genes is higher in patients with SLE with low serum vitamin D (unpublished data Ben-Zvi, I). B. Relative expression of 3 IFNα inducible genes (Mx1, Ifi1 and Ifit44) before and after (+D3) supplementation with vitamin D3 in 3 SLE patients. Vitamin D supplementation reduces expression of IFNα inducible genes (unpublished data Ben-Zvi, I).
