Cells isolated from embryonic intestine synthesize 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D3 and 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D3 in culture.

Abstract

Cells isolated from embryonic chick intestine in culture convert 25-hydroxyvitamin-D3 to a number of more polar metabolites. Two of these metabolites have been identified with chemical and chromatographic methods as 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D3 (24,25(OH)2D3) and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin-D3 (1,25(OH)2D3). The enzymes conform to substrate saturation kinetics. The apparent Km for substrate for the synthesis of 1,25(OH)2D3 and 24,25(OH)2D3 is 70 nM and 29 nM, respectively.
