1 Alpha-25,26-trihydroxyvitamin D3: an in vivo and in vitro metabolite of vitamin D3.


A new metabolite of vitamin D3 has been isolated from the plasma of vitamin D3 treated cows and has been generated from 25(S),26-dihydroxyvitamin D3 with homogenates of vitamin D deficient chick kidney. This metabolite has been identified as 1,25,26-trihydroxyvitamin D3 by comigration with synthetic 1,25(S),26-trihydroxyvitamin D3 in four chromatographic systems, ultraviolet spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and high-pressure liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry of derivatives. 1,25(S),26-Trihydroxyvitamin D3 is one-tenth as effective as 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 in binding to the chick intestinal cytosol 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D receptor. Either 25(S),26-dihydroxyvitamin D3 or 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 can serve as precursor for in vitro production of 1,25,26-trihydroxyvitamin D3 by chick kidney tissue.
