Changes in cytoplasmic calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) activate numerous cellular processes thus mediating the effects of a number of hormones, but whether this mechanism is involved in the activation of osteoblasts by parathyroid hormone (PTH) remains uncertain. To examine this question, [Ca2+]i has been measured in suspensions of UMR 106 cells, a rodent osteosarcoma cell line with an osteoblastic phenotype. Basal [Ca2+]i was 137 +/- 3.7 nM (n = 60) and after the addition of rat PTH-(1-34… CONTINUE READING
