Abstract:The article looks at nutrition research which examined the relationship between vitamin D and androgen receptors in prostate cancer cells. According to the article, vitamin D metabolite 1,25(OH)2D seems to play a role in preventing the growth of prostate cancer cells through androgen-independent and androgen-dependent actions. The article discusses solar radiation, vitamin D receptor polymorphisms, prostate cancer cell lines such as LNCaP, the androgen receptor antagonist Casodex, and prostate-specific antigen.
