Antibodies to Calcium Sensing Receptor (CaSR) - FocusOn 077

Introduction

The extracellular calcium (Ca(2+)(o))-sensing receptor (CaSR) enables the parathyroid glands and other CaSR-expressing cells involved in calcium homeostasis, such as the kidney and bone, to sense alterations in the level of Ca(2+)(o) and to respond with changes in function that are directed at normalizing the blood calcium concentration. Several disorders of Ca(2+)(o) sensing arise from inherited or acquired abnormalities that 'reset' the serum calcium concentration upwards or downwards.

Ca2+ acts as a first messenger via CaSR mediated activation of second messenger systems altering cellular physiology. Changes in extracellular calcium are thought to modulate a balance between proliferation and differentiation in a variety of cell types. It has been demonstrated that malignant transformations of cells are accompanied by a loss of responsiveness to the anti-proliferative effects of elevated extracellular calcium. Mutations in the human CaSR gene have been identified in several inherited disorders of Ca metabolism such as familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia (FHH), neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT), and autosomal dominant hypocalcemia (ADH).
