Measurement of intracellular Ca2+ in single aequorin-injected and suspensions of fura-2-loaded ROS 17/2.8 cells and normal human osteoblasts. Effect of parathyroid hormone.

Abstract

It is known that parathyroid hormone (PTH) activates the cyclic AMP (cAMP) signalling pathway in osteoblasts. In recent years it has been suggested that an elevation of the intracellular free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) may also be involved in the regulation of osteoblast function by PTH. However, this remains controversial. Here we investigated the effect… (More)
