Lack of Effect of Thyrocalcitonin on Formation of Bone Matrix in Mice and Rats
07 January 2009 (online)
The ability of thyrocalcitonin to promote bone formation has been tested in thyroparathyroidectomized mice and rats by measuring the incorporation of 3H-proline into calvarial bone matrix. It is concluded that porcine thyrocalcitonin has little or no direct effect on bone formation in these species.
