Metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins

Vitamins A, D, E, and K are classified as fat-soluble. Metabolic pathways by which dietary precursors of vitamins A (Harrison 2005) and K(Shearer et al. 2012) are converted to active forms, and by which 7-dehydrocholesterol is converted to active vitamin D (Dusso et al. 2005) are...
