Calcitriol Receptors (Calcitriol Receptor) Summary

Description: Proteins, usually found in the cytoplasm, that specifically bind calcitriol, migrate to the nucleus, and regulate transcription of specific segments of DNA with the participation of D receptor interacting proteins (called DRIP). Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidney to calcitriol and ultimately acts through these receptors.

Also Known As: Calcitriol Receptor; Vitamin D Receptor; Receptor, Vitamin D; Receptors, Calcitriol; 1,25-Dihydroxycholecalciferol Receptor Show All >>
