Vitamin D3 deficient (D−) mice show a depressed inflammatory response and both inflammatory peritoneal macrophages and bone marrow polymorphonuclear leukocytes of D− mice exhibit a decreased spontaneous migration under agarose. The impaired phagocytic response of peritoneal macrophages from D− mice can be corrected by incubation with 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 and is not affected by interaction with other vitamin D3 metabolites. Transfer of mice from the D− to the D+ state results in correction of both the inflammatory and the phagocytic response. Intactness of phagocyte function is thus directly dependent on vitamin D3 metabolism.
