UPDATE ON VITAMIN D AND IT'S ANTI MICROBIAL MECHANISM OF ACTION

Dear my friends and fellow Colleagues, Here is an update on Vitamin D and it's mechanism of action against Microbes. In viral infection, lung epithelial cells are able to convert inactive vitamin D to active vitamin D, which in turn produces an increased amount of defensive and cathelicidins, antimicrobial peptides of the host defense system, that kill pathogens or bind to endotoxin, forming ion channels and increasing membrane permeability. Regards and thanks, Dr Sepuri Krishna Mohan
