Family relationships


Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTH-rP) is structurally related to parathyroid hormone (PTH) [PMID: 2682846] and seems to play a physiological role in lactation, possibly as a hormone for the mobilisation and/or transfer of calcium to the milk. It also regulates chondrocytic differentiation and endochondral bone formation [PMID: 11760831].
