1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3-Liganded Vitamin D Receptor Increases Expression and Transport Activity of P-Glycoprotein in Isolated Rat Brain Capillaries and Human and Rat Brain Microvessel Endothelial Cells
Exposure of rat (RBE4) and human (hCMEC/D3) brain microvessel endothelial cells to 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, the active ligand of the vitamin D receptor, resulted in upregualtion of the multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1) and its gene product, P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and reduced the cellular accumulation of rhodamine 6G (R6G) and human amyloid-beta 1-42 (hAβ42), a putative precursor of plaques in Alzheimer's disease. P-gp efflux function was susceptible to inhibition by PSC833.
