General description

25-Hydroxyvitamin D3 (calcifediol) is a prohormone produced via hydroxylation of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in the liver. It is a precursor for the synthesis of calcitriol {1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 or [1,25(OH)2D3]}. It is also used as a biomarker to determine the status of vitamin D in the body.
