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 cataract. Therefore, pharmacological formulations encompassing “1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D or its analogues“ may be used to treat Cataract.
