Prostate cancer cell type-specific involvement of the VDR and RXR in regulation of the human PTHrP gene via a negative VDRE.
Comparison of mammalian genomes revealed evolutionary conservation of the VDRE in a short interspersed nuclear element or SINE in the CAMP promoter of primates that was absent in the mouse, rat, and canine genomes.
Usually the VDREs consist of a direct repeat of two hexanucleotides spaced by three nucleotides (DR-3), to which VDR preferentially binds as a heterodimer with the retinoid X receptor (RXR) (MacDonald et al.
