Parathyroid hormone increases circulating levels of fibronectin in vivo: modulating effect of ovariectomy.

To explore the effect of PTH on circulating levels of fibronectin (FN), adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were implanted with Alzet minipumps prepared to deliver 7 pmol/h x kg BW of either human PTH (1-34) or human PTH (1-84). Both forms of the hormone led to significant and progressive increases in circulating levels of FN over the 72-h study period (P < 0… CONTINUE READING
