Calcium Sensing Receptor in Human Colon Carcinoma: Interaction with Ca and 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3

Abstract

Recent studies show that the human parathyroid calcium sensing receptor (CaSR) is expressed in human colon epithelium and functions to regulate epithelial proliferation and differentiation. In this study, we show that the cells of the colon crypt acquire CaSR expression as they differentiate and migrate towards the apex of the crypt. CaSR expression was… (More)
