Recent studies demonstrate that parathyroid hormone (PTH) not only maintains mineral homeostasis through targeting the kidneys and bone, but also exerts its effects on other organs. For instance, PTH induces urate accumulation through inhibiting the expression of the ABCG2 in both the intestine and the kidney. In addition, PTH downregulates the expression of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A, a major enzyme for drug metabolism in both the intestine and liver, resulting in the increase of substrate drug exposure. These functions of PTH are mediated through the PTH receptor (PTHR) signaling. Since PTHR exists in various organs, PTH may regulate other, still unspecified transporters or enzymes in the organs that express PTHR.
