Modulación de la expresión génica por vitaminas liposolubles

  • Claudia María Velásquez Rodríguez Universidad de Antioquia
Palabras clave: vitaminas liposolubles, modulación génica, vitamina A, vitamina D, vitamina E, vitamina K, genética


La mayoría de las células especializadas de los organismos multicelulares son capaces de alterar el patrón de su expresión génica en respuesta a señales extracelulares. Los nutrientes no solo sirven como componentes estructurales del cuerpo y como sustratos metabólicos, también actúan como reguladores de la expresión de genes, cuyos productos son componentes celulares. Muchos macro y micronutrientes pueden modular la trascripción y entre ellos las vitaminas liposolubles son las más estudiadas, especialmente los mecanismos moduladores por medio de los cuales ejercen esta acción. El enfoque de este artículo es sobre el papel delas vitaminas liposolubles: A, D, E y K en la modulación de la expresión génica.
