FunctionNuclear hormone receptor. Transcription factor that mediates the action of vitamin D3 by controlling the expression of hormone sensitive genes. Regulates transcription of hormone sensitive genes via its association with the WINAC complex, a chromatin-remodeling complex. Recruited to promoters via its interaction with the WINAC complex subunit BAZ1B/WSTF, which mediates the interaction with acetylated histones, an essential step for VDR-promoter association. Plays a central role in calcium homeostasis.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in VDR are the cause of rickets vitamin D-dependent type 2A (VDDR2A) [MIM:277440]. A disorder of vitamin D metabolism resulting in severe rickets, hypocalcemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Most patients have total alopecia in addition to rickets.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
DomainComposed of three domains: a modulating N-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain.

Ab3508 staining Human normal jejunum. Staining is localized to the nucleus.
Left panel: with primary antibody at 1/2000. Right panel: isotype control.
Sections were stained using an automated system DAKO Autostainer Plus , at room temperature. Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3-in-1 AR buffer, citrate pH 6.0 in a DAKO PT Link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.
ab3508 staining the Vitamin D Receptor in mVDR-transfected and untransfected Mouse NIH/3T3 cells by ICC/IF (immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were paraformaldehyde fixed, permeabilized with Triton X-100 and blocked with 1% BSA/5%HS for 30 minutes at 20°C. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (1/50 in 1% BSA/5% HS in 1xPBS) for 1 hour 30 minutes at 20°C. A Cy3®-conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary.

Samples fixed in 4% PFA prior to cutting at 30µm thickness. Blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at 25°C. Secondary used at 1/200 polyclonal Goat anti-rabbit conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488.
