    Increased breast cancer incidence parallels the increase in cases of type 2 diabetes. We investigated the effect of type 1 receptor parathyroid hormone (PTH1R) expression on viability and apoptosis of breast cancer cells exposed to high levels of glucose. Upregulation of PTH1R was detected in...

  • The parathyroid hormone-related protein receptor is expressed in breast cancer bone metastases and promotes autocrine proliferation in breast carcinoma cells. Hoey, R P; Sanderson, C; Iddon, J; Brady, G; Bundred, N J; Anderson, N G // British Journal of Cancer;2/24/2003, Vol. 88 Issue 4, p567 

    Overproduction of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHRP) occurs in a high proportion of primary breast cancers (PBC) and is strongly implicated in their metastatic spread to bone. Although the PTHRP-receptor (PTHRP-R) is often coexpressed with PTHRP in PBC, its role in regulating breast...

    In this study we examined the level of the expression of PTHrP and its receptor (PTHrP-R) in human breast cancer and correlated their level of expression with the clinical outcome. Primary Breast cancer samples (n = 124) and adjacent non-cancerous breast tissues obtained from patients in cohort...
