Summary for Patent: 8,008,074
Title:Compositions and methods for improving bone mass through modulation of receptors of PTH and fragments thereof
Abstract: The present invention relates to the discovery of novel receptors for the signaling of PTH and/or fragments of PTH, and the role of cPTH in bone development. The novel PTH receptors identified are selected from the group consisting of LRP5/6, TGF.beta.RII, BMPRII (long form and short form), ActRIIA, and ActRIIB. Specifically, the present invention provides a novel screening tool for identifying compounds that improve bone mass by affecting certain pathways that promote or downregulate bone-forming activity. This promotion of bone-forming activity could provide for treatments for bone-loss or bone density disorders and/or kidney disease. The invention further encompasses the compounds, PTH ligands, and fragments of PTH ligands described herein; pharmaceutical compositions comprising the compounds, PTH ligands, or fragments of PTH ligand; and methods of increasing bone density using the compounds, PTH ligands, or fragments of PTH ligands.
