Significance: It has been known for years that Vitamin-D3 inhibits insulin resistance. However, the mechanistic basis of which remains largely unknown. This study suggests, for the first time, that 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of a number of stress responsive proteins. Thereby, it may increase the expression of an activator of insulin transcription, NeuroD1. Given the mechanistic basis, physicians may consider prescribing “1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3“ to treat DM.
