Parathyroid hormone-like hormone (PTHLH, MIM 168470) is a humoral factor, structurally and functionally related to parathyroid hormone, which mediates multiple effects on chondrocyte, osteoblast and osteoclast function. Mutations and copy number imbalances of the PTHLH locus and in the gene encoding its receptor, PTHR1, result in a variety of skeletal dysplasias including brachydactyly type E, Eiken syndrome, Jansen metaphyseal chondrodysplasia and Blomstrand type chondrodysplasia.
