Cardiovascular actions of parathyroid hormone and parathyroid hormone-related peptide.

Abstract

Cardiovascular cells (cardiomyocytes and smooth muscle cells) are target cells for parathyroid hormone (PTH) and the structurally related peptide parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTH-rP). PTH activates protein kinase C (PKC) of cardiomyocytes via a PKC activating domain previously identified on chondrocytes. Activation of PKC leads to hypertrophic… (More)
