Vitamin D Compounds in Human and Bovine Milk

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Nutritional Research book series (ANUR,volume 4)

Abstract

During the past decade considerable progress has been made toward an understanding of the transport, measurement, distribution, and molecular action of the antirachitic sterols. As a result of these major advances in our knowledge of vitamin D, many excellent reviews have been written dealing with each of these specific areas of study (Lawson and Emtage, 1974; Favus, 1978; DeLuca and Schnoes, 1976; J. G. Haddad, Jr., this volume).
