In previous studies, we characterized an extracellular Ca2+ (Cao(2+))-sensing receptor (CaR) that plays a central role in regulating parathyroid hormone secretion in mammals by sensing Cao2+. In the present study, we have cloned and characterized the chicken (Gallus domesticus) homolog of the CaR. The chicken parathyroid CaR shares a high degree of homology… CONTINUE READING
