      Decrease in calcitonin and parathyroid hormone mRNA levels and hormone secretion under long-term hypervitaminosis D3 in rats  [Article]

      Fernández-Santos, José María; Utrilla Alcolea, José Carmelo; Conde Amiano, Esperanza; Hevia Alonso, Antonio; Loda, M.; Martín Lacave, Inés María (Universidad de Murcia. Departamento de Biología Celular e Histología, 2001-04-25)
      In calcium homeostasis, vitamin D3 is a potent serum calcium-raising agent which in vivo regulates both calcitonin (CT) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) gene expression. Serum calcium is the major secretagogue for CT, a hormons ...
