Abstract

Genomic actions of the calciotropic hormone 1 alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) involves a multistep process that is triggered by the highly specific binding of 1,25(OH)2D3 to 1 alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 receptor, VDR. In order to study this key step in the cascade, we synthesized 1 alpha,25-dihydroxy[26(27)-3H]vitamin D3-3-deoxy-3 beta-bromoacetate (1,25(OH)2[3H]D3-BE) and 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitaminD3-3 beta-[1-14C]bromoacetate(1,25(OH)2D3-[14C]BE) binding-site directed analogs of 1,25(OH)2D3, and affinity-labeled baculovirus-expressed recombinant human VDR (with 1,25(OH)2[3H]D3-BE), and naturally occurring VDRs in cytosols from calf thymus homogenate and rat osteosarcoma (ROS 17/2.8) cells (with 1,25(OH)2D3-[14C]BE). In each case, specificity of labeling was demonstrated by the drastic reduction in labeling when the incubation was carried out in the presence of an excess of nonradioactive 1 alpha,25(OH)2D3. These results strongly suggested that 1,25(OH)2[3H]D3-BE and 1,25(OH)2D3-[14C]BE covalently modified the 1,25(OH)2D3-binding sites in baculovirus-expressed recombinant human VDR and naturally occurring calf thymus VDR and rat osteosarcoma VDR, respectively.
