Summaries for PTH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PTH Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the parathyroid family of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a protein that binds to the parathyroid hormone/parathyroid hormone-related peptide receptor and regulates blood calcium and phosphate levels. Excess production of the encoded protein, known as hyperparathyroidism, can result in hypercalcemia and kidney stones. On the other hand, defective processing of the encoded protein may lead to hypoparathyroidism, which can result in hypocalcemia and numbness. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]

GeneCards Summary for PTH Gene

PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PTH include Hypoparathyroidism, Familial Isolated and Familial Isolated Hypoparathyroidism Due To Impaired Pth Secretion. Among its related pathways are Endochondral Ossification and Vitamin D synthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include hormone activity and peptide hormone receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PTH Gene

  • PTH elevates calcium level by dissolving the salts in bone and preventing their renal excretion. Stimulates [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblastic cells.
