Product Description

Calcitonin (CT) is a polypeptide hormone with 32 amino acids synthetized primarily by the thyroid. CT is able to decrease blood calcium levels by direct inhibition of mediated bone resorption and by enhancing calcium excretion by the kidney. Immunohistochemical staining with anti-calcitonin antibody has proven to be an effective way of demonstrating calcitonin-producing cells in the thyroid. C-cell hyperplasia and medullary thyroid carcinomas stain positive for calcitonin. Studies of calcitonin have resulted in the identification of a wide spectrum of C-cell proliferative abnormalities.
