A hormone of the parathyroid gland that regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorous in the body.
protein hormone secreted from the parathyroid gland in response to low concentrations of calcium in blood.
A hormone secreted by the parathyroid glands when plasma calcium levels fall below the normal range; causes increased osteoclast activity, increased intestinal calcium uptake, and decreased calcium ion loss at the kidneys.
one of the principal calcium-regulating hormones in the body
Hormone secreted by the parathyroid glands that regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in the body.
A hormone that prevents the level of blood calcium from going too low and can stimulate the breakdown of bone. When given intermittently, it can increase bone mass.
A hormone produced by the parathyroid gland (located in the neck) which regulates the amount of calcium and phosphorous in the body. If blood levels of calcium drop, parathyroid hormone promotes the release of calcium from the bones to correct the deficiency in the blood. Secretion of abnormal quantities of parathyroid hormone can lead to bone softening.
hormone synthesized and released into the blood stream by the parathyroid glands; regulates phosphorus and calcium in the body and functions in neuromuscular excitation and blood clotting
Hormone that controls the distribution of calcium and phosphate in the body; activates the bone resorption process, increasing calcium in the blood. [See: Fluoride & Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
Hormone produced by parathyroid glands. Controls bone formation and the excretion of calcium and phosphorus.
(par-a-THI-royd) A substance made by the parathyroid gland that helps the body store and use calcium. Also called parathormone, parathyrin, or PTH.
(PAYR-uh-THY-royd HOR-mone) A substance made by the parathyroid gland that helps the body store and use calcium. Also called parathormone, parathyrin, or PTH.
a substance secreted by the parathyroid gland which regulates calcium levels in the body; a component of PTH has proven useful in increasing bone mineral density in people with osteoporosis
A hormone secreted by the parathyroid gland that regulates calcium in the body.
Hormone secreted by the parathyroid glands. Circulates in the blood stream to cause absorption of calcium from our diets, and out of bones. More about this.
Parathyroid hormone (a.k.a. parathormone, PTH) is a hormone, synthesized and released by the parathyroid glands, that controls the distribution of calcium and phosphate in the body.
A hormone, secreted by the thyroid gland, that regulates calcium and phosphorus metabolism.
this regulates the metabolism of calcium in the body. This is excreted by the parathyroid gland, responding to the amount of calcium in the bloodstream
A chemical substance produced by the parathyroid glands. This hormone is a major element in regulating calcium in the body.
regulates the levels of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium in blood
A substance made by the parathyroid gland (located in the neck) that helps the body store and use calcium.
From parathyroid glands; affecting calcium and phosphate balance partially through renal excretion and partially through effects on bone resorption and the intestine. Essential for life.

The name of the hormone that comes from the parathyroid glands. This hormone increases blood calcium. To do this, it will increase calcium absorption from the digestive tract and take calcium away from the bones and teeth. Abnormally high levels of this hormone produce a disease called Hyperparathyroidism.
A hormone that regulates calcium levels. It prevents the level of blood calcium from going too low by stimulating the breakdown of bone. In addition to triggering bone loss, it can stimulate bone formation. Given appropriately, it can increase bone mass, and is used as a treatment for osteoporosis (see Osteoporosis).
Parathyroid hormone (PTH), or parathormone, is secreted by the parathyroid glands as a polypeptide containing 84 amino acids. It acts to increase the concentration of calcium in the blood, whereas calcitonin (a hormone produced by the thyroid gland) acts to decrease calcium concentration.
