Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), a hormone required for phosphorus metabolism, was recently proposed to act on Ca2+ uptake; however, the available evidences of how FGF23 controls the body fluid Ca2+ homeostasis needs to be further clarified. The use of zebrafish as a model system revealed that FGF23 is specifically expressed in the corpuscles of Stannius (CS), an organ involved in Ca2+ homeostasis in fish, and its expression is stimulated by ambient water with a high Ca2+ level. The overexpression of FGF23 inhibited Ca2+ uptake by downregulating the mRNA expression of epithelium calcium channel (ECaC)...

Spinal cord ischemia reperfusion injury (SCIRI) can cause spinal cord dysfunction and even devastating paraplegia. Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) and calpain are two calcium related molecules which have been reported to be involved in the ischemia reperfusion injury of cardiomyocytes and the subsequent apoptosis. Here, we studied the expression of CaSR and calpain in spinal cord neurons and tissues, followed by the further investigation of the role of CaSR/calpain axis in the cellular apoptosis process during SCIRI...

Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is a calcium silicate-based bioactive material that has been extensively used in dentistry. MTA has been highlighted in its diverse biological functions and excellent clinical outcomes. However, limited insight into the intracellular signaling pathways has been provided to explain the biological activities of MTA. Here, we firstly elucidate that the extracellular calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a major signaling mediator of MTA-induced biological reactions through versatile live imaging techniques of human dental pulp cells (hDPCs)...

Several studies have identified the critical role of calcium-sensing receptors (CaSRs) in cardiac ischaemia/reperfusion injury and cardiac hypertrophy and have demonstrated that CaSRs induce myocardial apoptosis by activating MAPKs. Using acute myocardial infarction rat models, we found that a combination therapy of CaSR inhibition and embryonic stem cell (ESC) transplantation after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) leads to a dramatic reduction in the infarct size; a significant increase in the maximum rising and falling rate (+dp/dtmax and -dp/dtmax, respectively) of left ventricular pressure; a significant decrease in left ventricular end-diastolic pressure; a significant decrease in the mRNA expression level of CaSR, Bax, Bcl-2, cleaved caspase-3, cleaved caspase-9, p-ERK, p-JNK and p-P38 protein together with apoptosis indexes in the C and E groups; and a significant decrease in cTnT levels as well as LDH and CK activity...

The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a Class C G-protein coupled receptor that regulates food intake and assimilation. However, studies on the relationship between CaSR gene and growth traits in cattle are deficient. The aim of this study was to examine the association of the CaSR polymorphism with growth traits in cattle breeds. Four novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and one previously reported SNP (NC_007299.5: g.67630865T>C, 67638409G>C, 67660395G>C, 67661546C>G, and 67661892A>C) were identified in the bovine CaSR gene using DNA sequencing and PCR-SSCP methods in 520 individuals from three representative breeds...

The Calcium-Sensing Receptor (CaSR) is a G-protein coupled, 7-transmembrane domain receptor ubiquitously expressed throughout the body, brain including. The role of CaSR in the CNS is not well understood; its expression is increasing during development, which has been implicated in memory formation and consolidation, and CaSR localization in nerve terminals has been related to synaptic plasticity and neurotransmission. There is an emerging evidence of CaSR involvement in neurodegenerative disorders and Alzheimer's disease (AD) in particular, where the over-production of β-amyloid peptides was reported to activate CaSR...

BACKGROUND: Hereditary hypomagnesemia is difficult to diagnose accurately because of its rarity and the variety of causative genes. We established a flowchart for identifying responsible genes for hypomagnesemia, and we confirmed its diagnostic efficacy in patients with suspected inherited hypomagnesemia. METHODS: We established a flowchart and applied it to five index cases with suspected inherited hypomagnesemia. Direct sequence analysis was used to detect the causative gene variants in four cases, and targeted sequencing analysis using next-generation sequencing (NGS) of all causative genes for hypomagnesemia was used in one...

Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has excellent biocompatibility as well as bioactivity, including an ability to induce osteoblast differentiation. We examined the effects of the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) on osteogenic gene expression induced by MTA. MC3T3-E1 cells were cultured with or without (control) MTA. The expression levels of Runx2, type I collagen, and CaSR genes were analyzed by real-time polymerase chain reaction and their products were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. The levels were increased significantly in cells exposed to MTA compared with control...

BACKGROUND: Genetically improved farmed tilapia (GIFT, Oreochromis niloticus) are susceptible to infection by Streptococcus iniae when maintained in modern intensive culture systems. GIFT are commercially important fishes that are cultured widely in southern China. The role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the regulatory response of GIFT to S. iniae infection has been underestimated and has not yet been well studied. Head kidney has an important immune function in teleost fishes. The main aim of this study was to determine the possible function of miRNAs in head kidney of S...

Heterozygous germline gain-of-function mutations of G-protein subunit α11 (Gα11), a signaling partner for the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), result in autosomal dominant hypocalcemia type 2 (ADH2). ADH2 may cause symptomatic hypocalcemia with low circulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations. Effective therapies for ADH2 are currently not available, and a mouse model for ADH2 would help in assessment of potential therapies. We hypothesized that a previously reported dark skin mouse mutant (Dsk7) - which has a germline hypermorphic Gα11 mutation, Ile62Val - may be a model for ADH2 and allow evaluation of calcilytics, which are CaSR negative allosteric modulators, as a targeted therapy for this disorder...

Heterotrimeric G proteins play critical roles in transducing extracellular signals generated by 7-transmembrane domain receptors. Somatic gain-of-function mutations in G protein α subunits are associated with a variety of diseases. Recently, we identified gain-of-function mutations in Gα11 in patients with autosomal-dominant hypocalcemia type 2 (ADH2), an inherited disorder of hypocalcemia, low parathyroid hormone (PTH), and hyperphosphatemia. We have generated knockin mice harboring the point mutation GNA11 c...

PURPOSE: Patients with familial hyperparathyroidism and low urinary calcium excretion may have familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH) with mutations in one of three genes: the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) defining FHH-type 1, the adaptor-related protein complex 2 (AP2S1) related to FHH-type 3 or the G-protein subunit alpha11 (GNA11) associated with FHH-type 2. We aimed to evaluate the presence of mutations in these genes and to identify phenotypic specificities and differences in these patients...

The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) plays a pivotal role in systemic calcium metabolism by regulating parathyroid hormone secretion and urinary calcium excretion. The diseases caused by an abnormality of the CaSR are genetically determined or are more rarely acquired. The genetic diseases consist of hyper- or hypocalcemia disorders. Hypercalcaemia disorders are related to inactivating mutations of the CASR gene either heterozygous (autosomal dominant familial benign hypercalcaemia, still named hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia syndrome type 1) or homozygous (severe neonatal hyperparathyroidism)...

Low temperature is one of the key environmental stresses, which greatly affects global banana production. However, little is known about the global phosphoproteomes in Musa spp. and their regulatory roles in response to cold stress. In this study, we conducted a comparative phosphoproteomic profiling of cold-sensitive Cavendish Banana and relatively cold tolerant Dajiao under cold stress. Phosphopeptide abundances of five phosphoproteins involved in MKK2 interaction network, including MKK2, HY5, CaSR, STN7 and kinesin-like protein, show a remarkable difference between Cavendish Banana and Dajiao in response to cold stress...
