Autoactivation of type-1 parathyroid hormone receptors containing a tethered ligand.


Interactions between the N-terminal residues of parathyroid hormone (PTH) and the region of the PTH receptor containing the extracellular loops and transmembrane domains are thought to be critical for receptor activation. We evaluated this hypothesis by replacing the large N-terminal extracellular domain of the human type 1 PTH receptor (hP1Rc-WT) with… (More)
