Goat anti Human Vitamin D Receptor antibody recognises human vitamin D nuclear hormone receptor (VDR) a ~48 kDa member of the trans-acting transcriptional regulatory factors. On binding vitamin D, VDR regulates the expression of hormone sensitive genes. The main downstream target of VDR is involved in bone mineral metabolism although VDR is also involved in immune response and cancer metabolic pathways. VDR also acts as a receptor for secondary bile acid lithocholic acid. Additionally, signalling and oncogenic activity of beta-catenin signalling has been shown to be repressed by VDR (Shah et al. 2006).
