1 THP-1 macrophages and preconfluent CaCo-2 cells contain the vitamin D receptor (VDR), possess 25-hydroxylase (CYP2R1 and CYP27A1) and 1alpha-hydroxylase (CYP27B1) activity, and survive the low UVB doses essential for vitamin D3 photoproduction. Cholecalciferol GLI family zinc finger 2 Homo sapiens
