PTH/PTHrP receptor and mid-molecule PTHrP regulation of intrauterine PTHrP: PTH/PTHrP receptor antagonism increases SHR fetal weight.


Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) has important roles in fetal growth and development through stimulation of placental calcium transport, vasodilatation of the uteroplacental vasculature and regulation of cellular growth and differentiation. The growth restricted spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) has reduced fetal plasma, placental and amniotic… (More)
