Great article on Vitamin D

Body

Hi all, Here's a great review article on Vitamin D:

The article above discusses Vitamin D binding to Heat Shock Proteins, and I didn't know much about this myself, so for anyone interested, the wiki on Heat Shock Proteins gives some good info on HSPs:

Click on the link for HSP 70 toward the bottom of the wiki page for specific information on it...

  Hi Red- Haven't gotten through the article yet, but it looks to be a good one. Scanning the authors I found this one of related interest:

    Vitamin D in defense of the human immune response.

    Adams JS, Liu PT, Chun R, Modlin RL, Hewison M.

    Defensin is a generic name reserved for an endogenously synthesized antimicrobial agent. The purpose of this review is to describe a series of discoveries that led to the proposal that 25-hydroxylated metabolites of vitamin D are key, intracellular regulators of the synthesis and action of naturally occurring defensin molecules against bacterial antigens. The discussion will (1) highlight the basic elements of human immune response that is responsive to vitamin D, (2) recount work relevant to the extrarenal expression of the vitamin D-1-hydroxlase (CYP27b1) in the macrophage as an initiator of the innate immune response, and (3) describe recent work on the relevance of the vitamin D intracrine-autocrine-paracrine system in a model of a common and devastating human disease, tuberculosis.

Red,

I so appreciate your presence at this site!  You always post some of the best research !

Daisy- Agreed! It's nerds like Red that help us understand more of what we are dealing with here, and of the resources we need to, as Dr. Powell says, "Make yourself a bad host!"

Dan,  Thanks so much for this.  I have to admit, I was too tired to try to understand the really nerdy bits of the text, so I scanned for the tidbits of "meat" in it.  Very cool theories on the history of D and the genetic alterations/adaptations~geography and complexion.  Thanks too for the link on HSPs---lots of fodder for pondering there.

Hi Red, I can't post a new forum topic for this because of the site change, so I hope you don't mind that I added to your excellent thread.

Those with low vitamin D twice as likely to die

The title of the article is a sure attention grabber. Image removed.

Here's one more:

Vitamin D may prevent heart attacks in men

Study: Those with lower levels were 2 1/2 times more likely to have attack
