Active intestinal calcium transport in the absence of transient receptor potential vanilloid type 6 and calbindin-D9k.
To study the role of the epithelial calcium channel transient receptor potential vanilloid type 6 (TRPV6) and the calcium-binding protein calbindin-D9k in intestinal calcium absorption, TRPV6Expand

Trpv6 mediates intestinal calcium absorption during calcium restriction and contributes to bone homeostasis.
Energy-dependent intestinal calcium absorption is important for the maintenance of calcium and bone homeostasis, especially when dietary calcium supply is restricted. The active form of vitamin D,Expand

Phospholipase C-Mediated Regulation of Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 6 Channels: Implications in Active Intestinal Ca2+ Transport
Transient receptor potential vanilloid 6 (TRPV6) channels play an important role in intestinal Ca2+ transport. These channels undergo Ca2+-induced inactivation. Here we show that Ca2+ flowing throughExpand

Caveolin-1 deficiency induces spontaneous endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition in murine pulmonary endothelial cells in vitro.
It was previously demonstrated that transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) induces endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndoMT) in murine lung endothelial cells (ECs) in vitro. Owing to the importantExpand

Mechanism of Action of 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 on Intestinal Calcium Absorption and Renal Calcium Transport
In the intestine 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH)2D] induces various aspects of the transcellular active calcium transport system including calbindin, the basolateral plasma membrane pump, and theExpand

New Insights into the Mechanisms Involved in the Pleiotropic Actions of 1,25Dihydroxyvitamin D3
Abstract:  Vitamin D functions to regulate calcium homeostasis in intestine, kidney, and bone. Vitamin D deficiency during bone development causes rickets and in adults vitamin D deficiency, whichExpand

The Role Of Phospholipase C In The Ca 2+-induced Inactivation Of Trpv6
TRPV6 is a member of the transient receptor potential superfamily of ion channels that facilitates Ca2+ absorption in the intestines, especially the duodenum. TRPV6 channels have been shown to beExpand
A novel multimodal approach to treating proximal tracheal obstructions with spray cryotherapy.
Spray cryotherapy (SCT) ablation of airway obstructions is an evolving field of clinical practice and research in thoracic disease (1). The third generation truFreeze System (CSA Medical, Lexington,Expand
