I claim: 1. A process for achieving substantial photochemical conversion of tachysterol to previtamin D which comprises irradiating tachysterol in the presence of lumisterol, previtamin D and one of ergosterol and 7-dehydrochlolesterol, in the substantial absence of free oxygen, with radiation having a signficant energy in the region nm and in the presence of an effective amount of.
Because this photochemical process occurs in the plasma membrane, only the cis‐cis conformer of previtamin D 3 is formed, which, although thermodynamically unstable, is the only form that isomerizes to vitamin D 3.
3 Once formed, vitamin D 3 is ejected out of the plasma membrane into the extracellular space where it is drawn into the dermal. Thus, the ultraviolet rays activate the ergosterol in the yeast to vitamin D 2. The irradiated cream yeast is dried on drum driers and then ground to a fine powder.
In the earlier years of vitamin D milk production, the feeding of irradiated dry yeast to dairy herds was one of the recognized methods of producing vitamin D milk. 2 days ago The effect of UV-B irradiation on the vitamin D 2 and ergosterol concentrations of white button mushrooms is shown in Figure 2.
The vitamin D 2 concentration in the untreated control was μg/g (Figure 2A). After exposure to UV-B 20 and 30 min, the vitamin D 2 concentration increased toand μg/g, respectively.

Tetrahedron Letters45 (29), Of the several forms of vitamin D which have been recognized to date, two are known to be of prime importance in medicine. These are activated ergosterol and activated 7-dehydro-cholesterol. Other forms undoubtedly contribute to the total antirachitic effectiveness of certain agents, and it may be that the importance of some is greater than now.
Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids, the two major physiologically relevant forms of which are vitamin D 2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D 3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D without a subscript refers to either D 2 or D 3 or both.
Vitamin D is produced in the skin of vertebrates after exposure to ultraviolet B light, and occurs naturally in a small range of foods. Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate, and many other biological effects.
In humans, the most important compounds in this group are vitamin D 3 (also known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D 2 (ergocalciferol). The major natural source of the vitamin is synthesis of cholecalciferol in the lower.
On the positive side, there are photochemical reactions that are essential for human health. One of these is the formation of vitamin D (the antirachitic vitamin) by irradiation of ergosterol. This photochemical reaction is an electrocyclic ring opening of the cyclohexadiene ring of ergosterol of the type described in Section D.
The photochemical formation of vitamin D2 (VD2) is complicated, and optimization is essential for commercial production. An optimization methodology is introduced for investigating the factors.
Photochemical decomposition of ergosterol by near-UV radiation was revealed in vivo, although ergosterol is generally known to be photoconverted to previtamin D2 industrially by UV radiation in vitro.

Photochemical pathway of production of vitamin D 3 (cholecalciferol) from 7-dehydrocholesterol. The starting point is the irradiation of a provitamin D, which contains the mandatoryD 5,7-conjugated double bonds; in the skin this is absorption of a quantum of light from sunlight (UV-B), the activated molecule can return to the ground state and generate at.
We claim: 1. A method of production of vitamin-D 2 or vitamin-D 3 using ergosterol or 7-dehydro-cholesterol or their dihydroxy derivatives as the starting materials comprising: (a) irradiating the starting material with light in the wavelength range nanometers to obtain a product containing pre-vitamin-D 2 or pre-vitamin-D 3 as a minor proportion and tachysterol 2 and tachysterol 3 as.
exposure to sunlight or ingestion of vitamin D is relatively modest compared with cumulative production or intake of vitamin D (Hol-ick and Clark, ). The appearance in the blood of the parent compound, vitamin D, is short-lived as it is either stored in the fat or metabolized in.
Vitamin D stimulates the synthesis of the calcium transport proteins in the small intestine, enhancing the absorption of dietary calcium and thereby reducing the risk of osteomalacia in adults and rickets in children [1,2].Adequate vitamin D is also important for muscle function and reducing the risk of falls in the elderly  and may help protect against some cancers, respiratory disease in.
Vitamin D is necessary for the proper metabolism of minerals and bone formation, in mammals and birds. Biotechnologically speaking, however, one usually refers to the provitamin, ergosterol (1) the main sterol in yeasts and mycelial fungi. The provitamin may be converted to the proper vitamin (D 2) which undergoes further metabolism before.
Vitamin D 2 and ergosterol analysis. Vitamin D 2 and ergosterol were extracted and analyzed according to the method of Koyyalamudi et al., with slight modifications. Freeze-dried mushroom sample powder (1 g) was mixed with 50 mL of ethanol (95%), 4 mL of sodium ascorbate solution ( g of sodium ascorbate in mL of 1 M NaOH), and 10 mL of.
A consideration of the molecular structure of sterols in this connexion leads to the suggestion that not only the presence of the unsaturated carbon linkings, but also their number, is a deciding factor in the photo-chemical production of vitamin D from ergosterol.
Ergosterol (ergosta-5,7,trien-3β-ol) is a sterol found in cell membranes of fungi and protozoa, serving many of the same functions that cholesterol serves in animal e many fungi and protozoa cannot survive without ergosterol, the enzymes that synthesize it have become important targets for drug human nutrition, ergosterol is a provitamin form of vitamin D 2.Vitamin D 2 in mushrooms is produced upon exposure to sunlight and other sources of UV light through the photosyn-thetic conversion of ergosterol to vitamin D 2 via production of unstable previtamin D 2 intermediates (tachysterol, lumisterol), similar to the photochemical reaction in human skin, where 7-dehydrocholesterol is converted to vitamin D.The major function of vitamin D in vertebrates is maintenance of calcium homeostasis, but vitamin D insufficiency has also been linked to an increased risk of hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and cancer.
Therefore, there is a growing awareness about vitamin D as a requirement for optimal health. Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the skin by a photochemical conversion of provitamin D3.
