1,25-dihidroxivitamina D3
Scope note: Forma fisiológicamente activa de la vitamina D. Se forma principalmente en el riñón por hidroxilación enzimática del 25-hidroxicolecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Las concentraciones bajas de calcio en sangre y la hormona paratiroidea estimulan su producción. El calcitriol aumenta la absorción intestinal de calcio y fósforo y, conjuntamente con la hormona paratiroidea, aumenta la reabsorción ósea.

Scope note: The physiologically active form of vitamin D. It is formed primarily in the kidney by enzymatic hydroxylation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (CALCIFEDIOL). Its production is stimulated by low blood calcium levels and parathyroid hormone. Calcitriol increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and in concert with parathyroid hormone increases bone resorption.
