|Other Names||Vitamin D3 receptor, VDR, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 receptor, Nuclear receptor subfamily 1 group I member 1, VDR, NR1I1|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Nuclear hormone receptor. Transcription factor that mediates the action of vitamin D3 by controlling the expression of hormone sensitive genes. Recruited to promoters via its interaction with BAZ1B/WSTF which mediates the interaction with acetylated histones, an essential step for VDR-promoter association. Plays a central role in calcium homeostasis.|

This gene encodes the nuclear hormone receptor for vitaminD3. This receptor also functions as a receptor for the secondarybile acid lithocholic acid. The receptor belongs to the family oftrans-acting transcriptional regulatory factors and shows sequencesimilarity to the steroid and thyroid hormone receptors. Downstreamtargets of this nuclear hormone receptor are principally involvedin mineral metabolism though the receptor regulates a variety ofother metabolic pathways, such as those involved in the immuneresponse and cancer. Mutations in this gene are associated withtype II vitamin D-resistant rickets. A single nucleotidepolymorphism in the initiation codon results in an alternatetranslation start site three codons downstream. Alternativesplicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the sameprotein.
