Calcitonin, human

Calcitonin is a polypeptide hormone produced in the thyroid by parafollicular cells (C-Cells). It reduces blood calcium levels in opposition to parathyroid hormone effects. It participates in both calcium and phosphorus metabolism, stimulates osteoblast activity, and inhibits intestinal calcium absorption, osteoclast activity, and renal tubular cell calcium absorption. Calcitonin levels in the blood are dictated by blood calcium levels.
