Estradiol (E2) increases circulating calcium and phosphate levels in fish, thus acting as a hypercalcemic and hyperphosphatemic factor during periods of high calcium requirements, such as during vitellogenesis. Since parathyroid hormone (PTH)-related protein (PTHrP) has been shown to be calciotropic in fish, we hypothesized that the two hormones could be mediating the same process. Sea bream (Sparus auratus) juveniles receiving a single intraperitoneal injection of piscine PTHrP(1-34) showed an elevation in calcium plasma levels within 24 h. In contrast, injections of the PTH/PTHrP receptor antagonist PTHrP(7-34) decreased circulating levels of calcium in the sa...
