Purpose of reviewThe purpose of this review is to describe the development and function of the parathyroid gland from fish to mammals. We describe the molecular mechanisms regulating parathyroid gland embryogenesis and the clinical syndromes related to mutations in control genes. Recent findingsRecent studies have shown that fish express parathyroid hormone. This is contrary to the long held view that the earliest animals to possess parathyroid hormone were amphibians. Two fish species have… Expand

TLDR
Future investigation of somatic changes inParathyroid tumor DNA and the study of kindreds with HPT yet lacking germline mutation in the set of genes known to predispose to HPT represent two avenues likely to unmask additional novel genes relevant to parathyroid neoplasia. Expand
Study of Parathyroid Transcription Factor Gcm2 Expression in Parathyroid Lesions

  • 2011
TLDR
Gcm2 nuclear expression was seen in all the normal parathyroid glands, and cystic, hyperplastic, and neoplastic par Kathyroid lesions in a diffuse manner, whereas no Gcm2 expression was see in any other normal tissues and tumors, including those of the thymus and thyroid gland. Expand
Parathyroid: Pathophysiology and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease
TLDR
The genes MEN1, HRPT2, CASR, RET, CCND1, and VDR, along with others, are implicated in familial and/or sporadic parathyroid disease, and numerous animal models have been developed in order to further understand the mechanisms of disease. Expand
Mechanisms of thyroid development and dysgenesis: an analysis based on developmental stages and concurrent embryonic anatomy.
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the current knowledge of normal thyroid development and puts the different developmental stages in perspective, from the time of foregut endoderm patterning to the final shaping of pharyngeal anatomy, for understanding how specific malformations may arise. Expand
Embryology and Anatomy of the Parathyroid Glands
TLDR
The aim is to reinforce the link between embryology and surgical anatomy in the context of parathyroid surgery such thatParathyroid glands are successfully identified and operative morbidity is minimized. Expand
A Novel Parathyroid Protein in Chicken: Origin, Expression and Function
TLDR
The Parathormone and Related Peptides Activity and Expression in Chicken and a Novel Member and Comparative Analysis of the Parathyroid Hormone Family in Chicken are presented. Expand
Generation of mice encoding a conditional null allele of Gcm2
TLDR
The generation and functional characterization of mice encoding a conditional null allele of GCM2 are reported and the functional integrity of the conditional Gcm2 allele is demonstrated and successful in vivo deletion of exon 2 is reported using Cre recombinase. Expand
Zebrafish Bone and General Physiology Are Differently Affected by Hormones or Changes in Gravity
TLDR
Zebrafish larvae exposed to hypergravity results in a significantly larger head and a significant increase in bone formation for a subset of the cranial bones, and a novel type of experimental approach is proposed, the "Reduced Gravity Paradigm", by keeping the developing larvae at 3g hypergravity for the first 5 days before returning them to 1g for one additional day.

The Molecular Genetics of Hypoparathyroidism
Non-surgical, inherited hypoparathyroidism consists of a group of heterogeneous disorders characterized by hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia resulting from inadequate PTH synthesis, secretion, orExpand
Hypothyroidism associated with parathyroid disorders.
TLDR
Patients with hypothyroidism and hypocalcemia may follow endocrine glands' damages due to autoimmunity or chronic iron overload in thalassemic disorders, both genetically determined conditions. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the tetrapod parathyroid gland and the gills of fish are evolutionarily related structures, and that theParathyroid likely came into being as a result of the transformation of the gill buds during tetrapods evolution. Expand
Genetic ablation of parathyroid glands reveals another source of parathyroid hormone
TLDR
Gcm2 deletion uncovers an auxiliary mechanism for the regulation of calcium homeostasis in the absence of parathyroid glands, and it is proposed that this backup mechanism may be a general feature of endocrine regulation. Expand
The Role of Hoxa3 Gene in Parathyroid Gland Organogenesis of the Mouse
TLDR
Results indicate that lack of the Hoxa3 gene affects the intrinsic ability of the third pharyngeal pouch to form the parathyroid rudiment and has no detectable effect on the migration of neural crest cells. Expand
Eya1 is required for the morphogenesis of mammalian thymus, parathyroid and thyroid.
TLDR
The results indicate that Eya1 controls critical early inductive events involved in the morphogenesis of thymus, parathyroid and thyroid. Expand
Gcm2 is required for the differentiation and survival of parathyroid precursor cells in the parathyroid/thymus primordia.
TLDR
Results suggest that Gcm2 is not required for pouch patterning or to establish theParathyroid domain, but is required for differentiation and subsequent survival of parathyroid cells. Expand
Patterning of the third pharyngeal pouch into thymus/parathyroid by Six and Eya1.
TLDR
The results indicate that Eya1 appears to be upstream of very early events in the initiation of thymus/parathyroid organogenesis, while Six genes appear to act in an early differentiation step during thymUS/ parathyroid morphogenesis. Expand
GCMB gene, a master regulator of parathyroid gland development, expression, and regulation in hyperparathyroidism.
TLDR
GCMB expression is upregulated in abnormal parathyroid glands of hyperparathyroidism and decreases in response to hypocalcemia and the GCMB transcription factor might mediate the effect of calcium on parathy thyroid hormone expression/secretion. Expand
The role of Hoxa-3 in mouse thymus and thyroid development.
TLDR
It appears that the loss of Hoxa-3 affects the intrinsic capacity of this neural crest cell population to differentiate and/or to induce proper differentiation of the surrounding pharyngeal arch and pouch tissues. Expand
Hoxa3 and pax1 regulate epithelial cell death and proliferation during thymus and parathyroid organogenesis.
TLDR
The results suggest that a Hoxa3-Pax1 genetic pathway is required for both epithelial cell growth and differentiation throughout thymus and parathyroid organogenesis. Expand
Zebrafish gcm2 is required for gill filament budding from pharyngeal ectoderm.
TLDR
Zebrafish gcm2 is expressed in the ectodermal portion of the pharyngeal epithelium and is required for the development of the gill filament buds, precursors of fish-specific gill filaments. Expand
