Where is brain natriuretic peptide produced?
What cells produce cholecalciferol? Where is it converted to the final product?
1. Ventricles of the heart. 2. Keratinocytes in the epidermis synthesize cholecalciferol from 7-dehydrocholesterol. It is finally converted to calcitriol in the kidneys (the liver first converts it to calcifediol).

Are you asking for cell effects or general CNS effects?
Euphoria, reduced appetite, psychosis, increased sexual desire
