Effect of 26,26,26,27,27,27-Hexafluoro-1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 on the expression of vitamin-D-responsive genes in vitamin-D-deficient mice.

26,26,26,27,27,27-Hexafluoro-1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (ST-630) is a newly developed agent to maintain the levels of calcium and phosphorus in blood. Herein, we investigated the effect of this compound on the expression of vitamin-D-responsive genes in vitamin-D-deficient mice. ST-630 was more effective than 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] with respect to the induction of Cyp24 and calbindin-D9k mRNAs in the kidney and in the small intestine. Moreover, the increase in mRNA levels of vitamin-D-responsive genes induced by ST-630 lasted longer than that induced by 1,25(OH)2D3. These results indicate that ST-630 was more effective in inducing Cyp24 and calbindin-D9k gene expression than 1, 25(OH)2D3 when both compounds were injected into vitamin-D-deficient mice.[1]
