Calcitonin  Calcium (Ca2+) plays a significant role in both nervous conduction and muscle contraction. It is also necessary for coagulation (clotting) of blood. The blood calcium level is regulated in part by calcitonin, a hormone secreted by the thyroid gland when the blood calcium level rises (Fig. 10.7).
