    Calcitonin is a hormone produced by special cells in the thyroid called C-cells. The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland that lies over and flat against the windpipe in the throat. It produces calcitonin and several hormones that help control the rate of metabolism, primarily thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).This test measures the amount of calcitonin in the blood. Calcitonin: Proceedings of the Symposium on Thyrocalcitonin and the C Cells presents a critical review of studies on the purification of Alpha and Beta thyrocalcitonin. The book discusses the histopathological investigation on C cells, as well as the nature of parafollicular cells.

The discovery of calcitonin (CT), a hormone that is released in hypercalcemia and lowers the serum calcium, was first made by Copp et al. as a result of perfusing isolated thyroid-parathyroid gland preparations in the anesthetized dog [1, 2].Initially, the source of CT was mistakenly thought to be the parathyroid gland, but a thyroid origin was subsequently established Cited by: Calcitonin is a unique hormone, because its importance is not well known.

While doctors know what it does, they do not understand why we have it, and few symptoms occur if levels are high or low. The body appears to function normally, even with high or low levels of this thyroid hormone. Calcitonin (thyrocalcitonin) is a hormone produced by C cells in the thyroid gland.

The main action of calcitonin is on the bone. It increases deposition of calcium and phosphate in the bone and lowers levels in the blood, so effectively it inhibits calcium resorption by binding to a specific receptor on the osteoclasts, and inhibits their action.

Calcitonin is a 32 amino acid peptide hormone secreted by parafollicular cells (also known as C cells) of the thyroid gland in humans, and in many other animals in the ultimopharyngeal body.

It acts to reduce blood calcium (Ca 2+), opposing the effects of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Calcitonin has been found in fish, reptiles, birds, and importance in humans has not been as well Aliases: CALCA, CALC1, CGRP, CGRP-I, CGRP1.

Calcitonin. The calcitonin (CT) is a polypeptide hormone first discovered by Coop and colleagues in the course of investigations to identify hormones that regulate serum levels of calcium ().CT is able to decrease blood calcium levels by direct inhibition of mediated bone resorption and by enhancing calcium excretion by the kidney (2, 3).Human CT is a single-chain peptide of 32aminoacid residues.

Calcitonin is a man-made form of a hormone that occurs naturally in the thyroid gland. Calcitonin injection is used to treat Paget's disease of bone, or high levels of calcium in the blood 1/5.

Calcitonin, a protein hormone synthesized and secreted in humans and other mammals primarily by parafollicular cells (C cells) in the thyroid gland. The overall effect of calcitonin is to lower the concentration of calcium in the blood when it rises above the normal value.

Calcitonin is a hormone that is produced in humans by the parafollicular cells (commonly known as C-cells) of the thyroid gland. Calcitonin is involved in helping to regulate levels of calcium and phosphate in the blood, opposing the action of parathyroid hormone.

Calcitonin is one of three hormones produced by the thyroid gland and is found in fish, birds, reptiles, and mammals. It is a peptide hormone produced from procalcitonin, a larger peptide. The T3 and T4 hormones are made in the follicular epithelial cells, and Calcitonin is made in the parafollicular cells (also known as C-cells).

Calcitonin. Calcitonin is a hormone known to participate in calcium and phosphorus metabolism. In mammals, the major source of calcitonin is from the parafollicular or C cells in the thyroid gland, but it is also synthesized in a wide variety of other tissues, including the lung and intestinal birds, fish and amphibians, calcitonin is secreted from the ultimobrachial glands.

Michael W.J. Davie, in Endocrine Problems in Cancer, ECTOPIC CALCITONIN PRODUCTION. Calcitonin is normally secreted by the medullary C-cells of the thyroid gland, and considerable increases in concentration may accompany medullary carcinoma of thyroid. Sunil J. Wimalawansa, in Osteoporosis in Men (Second Edition), Publisher Summary.

Calcitonin is a single chain polypeptide hormone with a 1–7 disulfide bridge at the amino terminus and a carboxy-terminal proline amide. All calcitonins share this pattern.

This hormone was first discovered in and so named because of its ability to lower plasma calcium levels. Calcitonin's precise physiologic role in humans remains to be elucidated. It is known to act on the bones, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract.

Calcitonin binds directly to osteoclasts, thereby directly inhibiting osteoclastic bone resorption, an effect that is observed within minutes after calcitonin. Calcitonin is a hormone made by your thyroid, a small, butterfly-shaped gland located near the throat.

Calcitonin helps control how the body uses calcium. Calcitonin is a type of tumor marker. Calcitonin is a membered heterodetic cyclic peptide comprising the sequence Cys-Ser-Asn-Leu-Ser-Thr-Cys-Val-Leu-Gly-Lys-Leu-Ser-Gln-Glu-Leu-His-Lys-Leu-Gln-Thr-Tyr-Pro-Arg-Thr-Asn-Thr-Gly-Ser-Gly-Thr-Pro-NH2 cyclised by a disulfide bridge between the two Cys residues at positions 1 and has a role as a metabolite and a bone density conservation agent.

Calcitonin is a protein hormone secreted in humans primarily by thyroid C cells and has been found in fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Calcitonin-salmon, a synthetic hormone, primarily inhibits osteoclast function and is used for treating postmenopausal osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, Paget's disease, bone metastases, and phantom limb pain (1–3).Cited by: calcitonin (on 5/17/ at Pharmacy Drug pricing) CALCITONIN-SALMON UNITS SP: Generic: $ per ml: FPNotebook does not benefit financially from showing this medication data or their pharmacy links.
