Calcitonin receptorPolymorphismsIn vitro characterization
Calcitonin is a 32 amino acid peptide hormone that inhibits bone resorption by stimulating calcitonin receptors (CTR) located on the surfaces of osteoclasts. A polymorphism at nucleotide 1340 of the human calcitonin receptor gene (CALCR) lies within the coding region and has the potential to change the amino acid at codon 447 from leucine...More
