Correa, P. 2002. Vitamin D and its receptor in parathyroid tumors. Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis. Comprehensive Summaries of Uppsala Dissertations from the Faculty of Medicine 1186. 49 pp. Uppsala. ISBN 91-554-541-0

Hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is characterized by tumor development in the parathyroid glands and excessive production of parathyroid hormone. Parathyroidectomy is the only considered therapy for the majority of patients.

LOH (loss of heterozygosity) analysis revealed putative tumor suppressor genes on chromosome regions 1p and 11q in tumors from patients with truly mild hypercalcemia.

Active vitamin D [1,25(OH)2D3] and its receptors, the vitamin D receptor (VDR), are essential regulators of the calcium homeostasis and are involved in HPT development. The VDR-FokI polymorphism, coupled to bone mineral density, was found not to be associated to development of primary HPT (pHPT). The total VDR mRNA levels is reduced in adenomas of pHPT as well as in hyperplastic glands of secondary HPT (sHPT). The VDR exon 1f transcripts were exclusively downregulated in the adenomas of pHPT, suggesting default regulation of the tissue-specially expressed VDR 1f promoter. The cytochrome P450 enzymes responsible for synthesis and degradation of 1,25(OH)2D3, namely vitamin D3 25-hydroxylase (25-hydroxylase), 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 1a-hydroxylase (1a-hydroxylase) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 24-hydroxylase (24-hydroxylase) were found to be expressed in normal and pathological parathyroid glands. Tumors of pHPT and sHPT demonstrated increased 1a-hydroxylase and reduced 24- and 25-hydroxylase expression, suggesting an augmented local production of active vitamin D. In contrast, parathyroid carcinomas displayed reduced expression of all three hydroxylases. The gained knowledge of vitamin D metabolism and catabolism in parathyroid tumors may indicate possibilities for novel treatment of sHPT and perhaps pHPT.
