calcidiol

cal·ci·di·ol

(kal-sĭ-dī'ol),
First step in the biologic conversion of vitamin D3 to the more active form, calcitriol; it is more potent than vitamin D3.

calcidiol

(kăl-sĭ-dī′ŏl)
25-hydroxyvitamin D. It is the stored form of vitamin D that circulates in the body.

Of the two forms of vitamin D, 25(OH) D or calcidiol binds to a larger extent with DBP.
Biochemical parameters for all subjects were including serum calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), parathormone (PTH), TSH, calcidiol (25(OH)D3), osteocalcine (OC) and urine Ca and P levels.
2000) Iron Differs by type from hours to days in the human body (Geisser and Burckhardt 2011) Vitamin D 15 hours for calcitriol (active form) and 15 days for calcidiol (Jones 2008) Biomarkers In stored samples Maternal antibodies to Unknown fetal brain Mitochondrial DNA Mean [+ or -] SD: 62 [+ or -] 28 years (c) (Lebedeva et al.
When it converts to a vitamin D precursor in our skin through a chemical process, it then travels through our bloodstream and gets metabolized in the liver and to the kidneys, turning it into an active form of vitamin D, or a hormone called Calcitriol (or 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D), also called ergocalciferol(vitamin D2), cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), or calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D).
En el higado la VD se hidroxila para formar 25-(OH)D (calcidiol), que se metaboliza a su metabolito activo 1,25(OH)2D (calcitriol), por la enzima CYP27B1, preferentemente en el rinon.
The use of corticosteroids in the treatment of SLE also causes vitamin D deficiency because corticosteroids accelerate calcidiol catabolism (25[(OH).sub.2][D.sub.3]) into calcitriol (1,25[(OH).sub.2][D.sub.3]) [7].
In this pathway, vitamin D3 is converted to calcidiol by the CYP2R1 enzyme and subsequently in calcitriol (1,25[[OH].sub.2] [D.sub.3]), the circulating form of vitamin D3 [75], by the CYP27B1 enzyme [47].
The realization of the biological effects of vitamin D in cells is closely related to the functioning of the vitamin D-endo/para/autocrine system, which includes (1) photoconversion of 7-dehydrocholesterol in the skin with the formation of cholecalciferol; (2) synthesis of 25OHD (calcidiol) in the liver by means of two key vitamin D 25-hydroxylases (cytochromes P450), CYP2R1 and CYP27A1; (3) conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) in the kidneys or extrarenal tissues to hormonally active form, 1[alpha],25[(OH).sub.2]D, by 25OH-1[alpha]-hydroxylase (CYP27B1); (4) calcitriol transport to target organs by vitamin D binding protein (VDBP); and (5) binding of 1[alpha],25[(OH).sub.2]D to vitamin D receptors (VDR) and regulation of gene expression [7].
The reaction first occurs in the liver and converts vitamin D to 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], also known as calcidiol. The second occurs primarily in the kidney and forms the physiologically active 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], also known as calcitriol.
They are metabolised into 25(OH) vitamin D (calcidiol) in the liver and subsequently to 1,25(OH) vitamin D (calcitriol) in the kidneys.
As determined by the measurement of serum concentrations of calcidiol (25-OH-D), vitamin D deficiency is accepted to be present when values are below 15 ng/mL.
