The conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25 OH D3) to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2D3), 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (24,25-(OH)2D3) and 1,24,25-trihydroxyvitamin D3 (1.24,25-(OH)3D3) was studied in renal tubules prepared from chicks raised on a vitamin D deficient diet with or without vitamin D supplementation. As described previously, in tubules from vitamin D deficient chicks, cyclic AMP caused an increase in the net accumulation of 1,25-(OH)2D3, the major metabolite formed under these circumstances. This stimulation was shown to be due to an increased maximum velocity of the hydroxylation reaction. There was also a significant inhibition of the net accumulation of 24,25-(OH)2D3. Cycli..
