- Over the past few years, the VDR market has experienced prominent growth, due to its adoption across various enterprises as an important tool, along with the increasing demand for risk management, need for the intellectual property, and an increasing amount of business data arising from business deals thereby fueling the demand and requirement for VDRs.
Vitamin D is a lipid soluble steroid molecule and its receptor (VDR) has been identified in the female reproductive tissues including human ovaries, endometrium, fallopian tube, placenta, and decidual cells (3).
There were three slices for each specimen: one slice used phosphate buffered saline (PBS) instead of the primary antibody for negative control, one slice performed VDR immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining, and the last performed CYP27B1 IHC staining (automated immunohistochemical staining instrument; Dako, Denmark).
The nuclear hormone receptors, including peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptors ( PPARs ), estrogen receptors, the Vitamin D receptor ( VDR ), hepatocyte nuclear factor-1a ( HNF-1a ), hepatocyte nuclear factor-4a ( HNF-4a ), farnesoid X receptor ( FXR ), and liver X receptors ( LXRs ), were thought to play roles in the pathogenesis of DN, and many of them have been suggested to provide protection against DN.[7]
The realization of the biological effects of vitamin D in cells is closely related to the functioning of the vitamin D-endo/para/autocrine system, which includes (1) photoconversion of 7-dehydrocholesterol in the skin with the formation of cholecalciferol; (2) synthesis of 25OHD (calcidiol) in the liver by means of two key vitamin D 25-hydroxylases (cytochromes P450), CYP2R1 and CYP27A1; (3) conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) in the kidneys or extrarenal tissues to hormonally active form, 1[alpha],25[(OH).sub.2]D, by 25OH-1[alpha]-hydroxylase (CYP27B1); (4) calcitriol transport to target organs by vitamin D binding protein (VDBP); and (5) binding of 1[alpha],25[(OH).sub.2]D to vitamin D receptors (VDR) and regulation of gene expression [7].
Curcumin is a natural ligand for vitamin D receptor (VDR) [14] and it is recently also mentioned that VDR activation can also induce Treg cells and inhibit the activation of Th17 [15].
The activation of VDRs by 1,25(OH)2D reduces liver and serum cholesterol levels because VDRs suppress the expression of the small heterodimer partner and activation of cholesterol 7-a-hydroxylase (CYP7A1).
Vitamin D binds to the VDR; however, the role of Vitamin D and VDR in male reproduction is not completely known.
The PIRC concluded there was a "significant disparity between Forth Valley and the 13 other police divisions in VDRS".
The statistics contained in the Intralinks DFP represent the volume of VDRs opened, or proposed to be opened, through Intralinks or other providers for the purpose of conducting due diligence on proposed transactions including asset sales, divestitures, private placements, financings, capital raises, joint ventures and partnerships.
They also handed out traffic offence reports (endorsable tickets) to three vehicles, and issued five Vehicle Defect Rectification Scheme (VDRS) notices.
Danelec Marine has announced that Maersk Line is retrofitting 100 vessels with the next-generation Danelec DM100 Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and Simplified Voyage Data Recorders (S-VDRs).
