Acts by decreasing renal excretion and stimulating 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D, hence increasing GI absorption of calcium. Acts on osteoclasts to release calcium from bone mainly indirectly via osteoblast cells 18 1 Orthopaedic Basic Science and Commmon Injuries n Calcitonin: stimulated by high [Ca]. Acts by decreasing the number and activity of osteoclasts. Osteoclasts have calcitonin receptors and calcitonin will shrink the osteoclast in in vitro experiments n The role of vitamin D was mentioned.
