Significance: This study suggests that 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of a number of tumor suppressor proteins.  Thereby, it may promote the survival of lens epithelial cells and prevent age-related cataractTherefore, pharmacological formulations encompassing 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D or its analogues may be used to treat Cataract.

Amount: $300

Undisclosed information: How 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D promotes the survival of lens epithelial cells.
