General description

VDR (vitamin D receptor) or vitamin D3 receptor is a member of the steroid and thyroid hormone receptors superfamily of trans-acting transcriptional regulatory factors. It is an intracellular polypeptide of 50-60kDa. This receptor is composed of a highly conserved cysteine, lysine, and arginine-rich DNA-binding domain, and a hydrophobic ligand-binding domain in its C-terminal. It shares size and sequence similarity to thyroid hormone receptor. VDR gene is localized to human chromosome 12q12–q14.


VDR (AAH60832, 1 a.a. ~ 427 a.a) full-length recombinant protein with GST tag. MW of the GST tag alone is 26 KDa.


Physical form

Solution in phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4

Biochem/physiol Actions

VDR (vitamin D receptor) binds with its ligand 1a, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D3] or vitamin D3, and act upon the target cell nuclei to induce various biological effects. Vitamin D3 is also thought to have immunomodulatory effects, and gene polymorphisms are linked with pertussis. This variant might thus, affect the immune response and clinical outcome of Bordetella pertussis infection.
