Numerous in vitro studies in experimental animals have demonstrated a direct suppressive effect of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D) on parathyroid hormone (PTH) synthesis. We therefore sought to determine whether such an effect could be demonstrated in uremic patients undergoing maneuvers designed to avoid changes in serum calcium concentrations. In(More)
1,25-(OH)2D has been shown to suppress the synthesis and secretion of parathyroid hormone in vivo and in dispersed parathyroid cell cultures. Control of transcription by 1,25-(OH)2D is believed to be mediated by interaction of this hormone with a specific receptor within target cells. We have examined the 1,25-(OH)2D receptor in parathyroid glands from(More)
We have previously demonstrated that while both normal humans and dogs tightly control serum calcitriol levels after 25(OH)D administration, anephric humans and 5/6 nephrectomized dogs significantly increase circulating 1,25(OH)2D when supraphysiological concentrations of 25(OH)D are reached in serum. Plasma 1,25(OH)2D level is determined not only by its(More)
