The heart is a target organ for parathyroid hormone (PTH), and the action of this hormone on the myocardium may be mediated through the ability of PTH to increase cytosolic calcium ([Ca2+]i) in the myocardial cells. However, direct evidence for such an effect of PTH is lacking, and the mechanism(s) through which the hormone can potentially exert such an effect have not been elucidated. In the present study these questions were examined using cardiac myocytes isolated from adult rats. Both PTH… CONTINUE READING
