If the location of these double bonds is shifted, vitamin activity is substantially reduced. A side chain of a length at least equivalent to that of cholesterol is also a prerequisite for vitamin activity. If the side chain is replaced by a hydroxyl group, for example, the vitamin activity is lost. The potency of the various D vitamins is determined by the side chain. D5, for example, with its branched 10-carbon side chain, is much less active with respect to the calcification of bone cartilage than is D3 with its 9-membered side chain.
