The vitamn D3 after administration produces its action by getting activated by hydroxylation . The activation of vitamin D3 causes binding to the receptor which work as a transcription factor for modulation of gene expression. It forms complex with the respective receptor and causes binding to DNA. It usually activates the transcription. It increases the serum calcium absorption through GI and also by distal tubular reabsorption. The absorption of calcium depends on calcium binding protein.
