Calcitonin is a 32 amino acid peptide hormone secreted by parafollicular cells (also known as C cells) of the thyroid (or endostyle) in humans and other chordates. in the ultimopharyngeal body. It acts to reduce blood calcium (Ca 2+ ), opposing the effects of parathyroid hormone (PTH).
The overall effect of calcitonin is to lower the concentration of calcium in the blood when it rises above the normal value. It also lowers the concentration of phosphorus in the blood when levels exceed normal. Calcitonin acts to decrease serum calcium concentrations in several ways.
What is the function calcitonin? Calcitonin is a hormone that is produced in humans by the parafollicular cells (commonly known as C-cells) of the thyroid gland. Calcitonin reduces calcium levels in the blood by two main mechanisms: It inhibits the activity of osteoclasts, which are the cells responsible for breaking down bone.
Calcitonin acts on calcitonin receptors in bone and possibly also the kidney and gastrointestinal tract, preventing the breakdown of bone and increasing its density. Calcitonin is a human hormone that is also found in salmon, however, man-made calcitonin is made using DNA recombinant technology and does not use salmon.
Calcitonin is a human hormone that is also found in salmon, however, man-made calcitonin is made using DNA recombinant technology and does not use salmon. Calcitonin may be known as calcitonin-salmon. Calcitonin belongs to the class of medicines known as calcitonin receptor agonists. 2. Upsides.
