PTH-1R responses to PTHrP and regulation by vitamin D in keratinocytes and adjacent fibroblasts.

Vitamin D and PTHrP are essential for the differentiation of keratinocytes and epidermal development. The action of PTHrP on skin is mediated via its PTH-1R receptors present in both epidermal and dermal cells. This suggests that PTHrP may have a paracrine/autocrine role, and its receptors may act in association or in negative cooperativity. We compared the… CONTINUE READING
