Although the primary function of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] is the regulation of calcium and phosphorus metabolism, it also regulates the growth and differentiation of several different cell types. Recent work suggests that 1,25(OH)2D3 regulates cellular growth by altering the synthesis of growth factors and growth factor responses.
