Description

 

Calcitonin is a 32-amino acid linear polypeptide hormone that is produced in humans primarily by the parafollicular cells (also known as C-cells) of the thyroid, and in many other animals in the ultimobranchial body.It acts to reduce blood calcium (Ca2+), opposing the effects of parathyroid hormone (PTH).It belongs to calcitonin-like protein family.Calcitonin is formed by the proteolytic cleavage of a larger prepropeptide.It used for the treatment of Postmenopausal osteoporosis,Hypercalcaemia,Paget's disease,Bone metastases,Phantom limb pain.It may be used diagnostically as a tumor marker for medullary thyroid cancer, in which high calcitonin levels may be present and elevated levels after surgery may indicate recurrence. It may even be used on biopsy samples from suspicious lesions to establish whether they are metastasis of the original cancer.
