PTH (parathyroid hormone), acting via type 1 PTH receptors, is a major regulator of plasma [Ca(2+)]. The G-protein, G(s), is an essential component of the sequence linking PTH to plasma Ca(2+) regulation, but the relative importance of intracellular signals, including Ca(2+) and cAMP, that lie downstream of G(s) is not resolved.
