[New Developments in CKD-MBD. Molecular mechanisms of intestinal and renal phosphate transport].Clin Calcium. 2014 Dec; 24(12):1793-9.CC
Intestinal inorganic phosphate (Pi) absorption and renal Pi reabsorption are regulated by parathyroid hormone, fibroblast growth factor 23, or 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, which modulate the expression of Pi transporters. Identification, functional characterization and analysis of knockout mice of Pi transporters contributed to clarify the role of each transporter in Pi homeostasis. Furthermore, the molecular mechanisms will lead to the development of new pharmaceutical research approaches.
