Background Vitamin D signals through the vitamin D receptor (VDR) which is a member of the nuclear receptor family of transcription factors that play an immunoregulatory role in the gut. Defective signalling due to vitamin D deficiency or decreased mucosal VDR levels has been related to Crohn’s disease (CD). We aim to analyse the acute effects of V...

Background Vitamin D is used to reduce cancer risk and improve the outcome of cancer patients, but the VDR pathway needs to be functionally intact to ensure the biological effects of circulating calcitriol. Besides ERα, another nuclear receptor, ERRα, has recently been shown to interfere with the VDR pathway, but its role in the cytotoxicity and tr...

The role of vitamin D receptor (VDR) in immune responses has been broadly studied and it has been shown that activated VDR alters the levels of some interleukins (ILs). In this study, we studied the opposite, i.e. whether 13 selected pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory ILs influence the transcriptional activity of human VDR. The experimental mod...

The biological functions of 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 are regulated by nuclear receptor vitamin D receptor (VDR). The expression level of VDR is high in intestine. VDR is an essential regulator of intestinal cell proliferation, barrier function, and immunity. Vitamin D/VDR plays a protective role in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), both ulcerati...
