1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2D3) receptor content in cultured osteogenic sarcoma cells (UMR-106) was found to be increased after treatment with both bovine and human PTH and human PTH-like peptide (hPLP). The dose dependent increase of receptors was preceded by a dose dependent stimulation of cAMP production. This suggests a role for cAMP as mediator of the PTH- and hPLP-induced 1,25-(OH)2D3 receptor up-regulation. Furthermore, evidence was obtained that new mRNA and de novo receptor synthesis is involved in this heterologous 1,25-(OH)2D3 receptor up-regulation.
