Parathyroid hormone (PTH) has been shown to stimulate calcium (Ca) transport in many tissues including human red cells, cultured heart cells, isolated mitochondria, Hela cells, renal and Ehrlich ascites tumor cells (1–7). The effect of PTH on calcium transport appears to be independent of activation adenylate cyclase (8). Because of these findings, we proposed that PTH may act as a naturally occurring calcium ionophore (8).
