Example sentences for: parathyroid

How can you use “parathyroid” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Intestinal calcium absorption is increased after feeding a low calcium diet or under conditions of increased calcium needs, such as during growth, via a parathyroid hormone (PTH)-vitamin D mediated process [ 3 ] . A lowering of serum calcium levels stimulates the secretion of PTH that then activates the renal conversion of inactive 25-hydroxyvitamin D to the active hormonal metabolite 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. At the intestine, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, acting through a nuclear receptor, stimulates transcription of vitamin D-mediated genes, including calbindin D, involved in calcium transport thereby acting as the primary hormonal regulator of active intestinal calcium transport [ 3 ] . It is thus likely that any putative key molecular player in calcium absorption, such as CaT1 or ECaC1, should be a prime target for hormonal regulation by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. However, to date, neither CaT1 nor ECaC1 expression has been shown to be related to serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D or vitamin D status [ 10 16 ] .

  • Parathyroid Hormone/Parathyroid hormone related peptide Receptor (PTH/PTHrP-R; L28108); forward primer: 5'-GAAAGAATAAAGCAAAAGCGAGACA-3'(232-256); reverse primer: 5'-AGGGAGCTCTGACATCGGG-3'(299-281).

  • Familial hyperparathyroidism may be confined to parathyroid adenoma (HRPT1 #145000) or may involve the broader endocrine disturbances of multiple endocrine neoplasia Types I (#131100) and IIA (#171400).

  • Laboratory studies are shown in Table 1. The intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) was appropriately suppressed to 6 pg/mL with concomitant serum calcium of 13.
