Abstract:
Regulation of prepro-PTH and vitamin D receptor (VDR) mRNAs in the parathyroid glands was studied in chickens in vivo. The birds were raised to 21 days of age on a vitamin D-deficient diet with 1% calcium and 0. 65% phosphorous. At the end of this period, the chicks exhibited marked hypocalcemia and enlarged parathyroid glands. In three separate trials, the birds were repleted for 6 days with vitamin D and different dietary calcium and phosphate concentrations, with 2 μg/kg 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3[l, 25-(OH)2D3] and different dietary calcium concentrations (0. 5%, 1. 0%, or 1. 8%), or with 2 or 10 μg/kg 1, 25-(OH)2D3 and 0. 6% or 1. 9% calcium or were kept vitamin D;l deficient and fed 0. 5%, 1. 0%, or 1. 8% dietary calcium. Vitamin D treatment when combined with a high level of dietary calcium resulted in an increase in plasma calcium from 6 mg/dl to greater than 10 mg/dl, a decrease in PTH mRNA of 65%, and a 6- to 8-fold increase in VDR mRNA. In another experiment in which no vitamin D source was given and the diets contained increasing levels of dietary calcium, plasma calcium increased significantly (5. 5 vs. 7 mg/dl), while PTH mRNA decreased by 40% and VDR mRNA increased by 60%. Neither parathyroid gland weight nor total RNA was significantly affected. When chicks were repleted with l, 25-(OH)2D3, the increase in plasma calcium and VDR mRNA and the decrease in PTH mRNA were considerably more pronounced than those in the absence of the vitamin D source. Furthermore, in the presence of the hormone, parathyroid weight and total RNA decreased significantly with increasing concentrations of dietary calcium. When the chicks were repleted, respectively, with the two levels of l, 25-(OH)2D3, a marked positive interaction was evident between the hormone and dietary calcium in affecting levels of PTH and VDR mRNA. These results suggest that both l, 25-(OH)2D3 and calcium participate in the regulation of PTH and VDR gene transcription in the avian parathyroid gland. Whereas the action of 1, 25-(OH)2D3requires a minimal level of dietary calcium, calcium affects PTH and VDR gene transcription even in the absence of any vitamin D source. © 1993 by The Endocrine Society.
