The parathyroid glands are small endocrine glands in the neck of humans and other tetrapods that produce parathyroid hormone.. Humans usually have 4 parathyroid glands variably located on the back of the thyroid gland, although considerable variation exists.. Parathyroid hormone and calcitonin (one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland) have key roles in regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones..Each gland is a yellowish-brown flat ovoid that resembles a lentil seed..Each parathyroid vein drains into the superior and, middle and inferior thyroid veins.. The superior and middle thyroid veins drain into the jugular vein, and the inferior thyroid vein drains into the brachiocephalic vein..Parathyroid development is regulated by a number of genes, including those coding for several transcription factors..The parathyroid glands were first discovered in the Indian Rhinoceros by Richard Owen in 1852..Fish do not possess parathyroid glands, however several species have been found to express parathyroid hormone..It has been suggested that the tetrapod glands may have been evolutionarily derived from these fish gills...
