Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) cell line ASZ001

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is > 20.8mg/mL. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 ℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

10 nM, 48 h


In BCC ASZ001 cells, calcitriol significantly inhibited the Hh-signaling pathway and activated the Vdr-signaling pathway. Calcitriol suppressed cell proliferation but had no effect on apoptosis for caspase 3/7 activity was unchanged.

Clinical experiment [2]:

Clinical samples

Patients with recent-onset type 1 diabetes aged 11–35 years

Dosage form

0.25 μg/day, for 2 years


At 6, 12, and 24 months, A1C, C-peptide, and insulin requirement values had no difference between calcitriol and placebo groups. These results indicated that at the doses used, calcitriol was not able to protect β-cell function in subjects with recent-onset type 1 diabetes and high C-peptide.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Calcitriol is a form of Vitamin D, is converted to metabolites more potent and rapidly acting than other forms of Vitamin D [1].

Calcitriol has played an important role in mineral and skeletal homeostasis by regulating the differentiation, growth and the function of the cell immune system. In vitro studies, Calcitriol has been reported to dose-dependently inhibit the production of tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α) and interleukin-1β(IL-1β) in human peripheral blood cells (PBMC) stimulated by LPS. Furthermore, Calcitriol has been revealed to significantly reduced the basal intradialytic increases of TNF-αand IL-1βin vivo studies. Apart from these, Calcitriol has also been reported to modulate the cytokine production indirectly through the effect on calcium and PTH metabolism [2].
