Receptors, Calcium-Sensing MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Receptors, Calcium-Sensing
Tree Number(s)
D12.776.543.750.695.115
Unique ID
D044169
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
CALCIUM-BINDING PROTEINS is also available
Scope Note
A class of G-protein-coupled receptors that react to varying extracellular CALCIUM levels. Calcium-sensing receptors in the PARATHYROID GLANDS play an important role in the maintenance of calcium HOMEOSTASIS by regulating the release of PARATHYROID HORMONE. They differ from INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM-SENSING PROTEINS which sense intracellular calcium levels.
