Gene Family: Calcium sensing receptors

Calcium-sensing receptor: The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a Class C G-protein coupled receptor which senses extracellular levels of calcium ion. In the parathyroid gland, the calcium-sensing receptor controls calcium homeostasis by regulating the release of parathyroid hormone (PTH). [Source: Wikipedia]
