Fondazione IRCCS Cà Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Endocrinology Unit, Via Lamarmora 5, 20122, Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Parathyroid hormone (PTH), which is primarily regulated by extracellular calcium changes, controls calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Different diseases are derived from PTH deficiency (hypoparathyroidism), excess (hyperparathyroidism) and resistance (pseudohypoparathyroidism, PHP). Pseudohypoparathyroidism was historically classified into subtypes according to the presence or not of inherited PTH resistance associated or not with features of Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy and deep and progressive ectopic ossifications.

Comparable Initial Engagement of Intracellular Signaling Pathways by Parathyroid Hormone Receptor Ligands Teriparatide, Abaloparatide, and Long-Acting PTH.

JBMR Plus 2021 May 6;5(5):e10441. Epub 2021 May 6.

Endocrine Unit, Department of Medicine Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School Boston MA USA.

Multiple analogs of parathyroid hormone, all of which bind to the PTH/PTHrP receptor PTH1R, are used for patients with osteoporosis and hypoparathyroidism. Although ligands such as abaloparatide, teriparatide (hPTH 1-34 [TPTD]), and long-acting PTH (LA-PTH) show distinct biologic effects with respect to skeletal and mineral metabolism endpoints, the mechanistic basis for these clinically-important differences remains incompletely understood. Previous work has revealed that differential signaling kinetics and receptor conformation engagement between different PTH1R peptide ligands. Read More
