Recent investigation has shown that the liver-derived iron-regulating hormone, hepcidin, can potentiate intestinal calcium absorption in hemizygous β-globin knockout thalassemic (BKO) mice. Since the upregulation of Fe2+ and H+ cotransporter, divalent metal transporter (DMT)-1, has been shown to correlate with thalassemia-induced intestinal calcium(More)
BACKGROUND Anticancer activity of extracellular nucleotides has been investigated in many types of cancer. Herein, the effects of extracellular nucleotides and the receptor profile for these nucleotides on prostate cancer (PCa) were elaborated. MATERIALS AND METHODS PCa cell lines representing different stages of PCa were used. The effects of ATP and(More)
Na+/H+ exchanger (NHE)-3 is important for intestinal absorption of nutrients and minerals, including calcium. The previous investigations have shown that the intestinal calcium absorption is also dependent on luminal nutrients, but whether aliphatic amino acids and glucose, which are abundant in the luminal fluid during a meal, similarly enhance calcium(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies showed that human bone marrow stromal HS-5 cells secreted unidentified factor(s) inducing PCa cell death. Herein, the HS-5-derived factor (HS-5 DF) was characterized and identified. METHODS Conditioned media from confluent HS-5 cells were collected and modified for biochemical characteristic testing of HS-5 DF. Cell survival(More)
Parathyroid hormone (PTH), a pleiotropic hormone that maintains mineral homeostasis, is also essential for controlling pH balance and ion transport across renal and intestinal epithelia. Optimization of luminal pH is important for absorption of trace elements, e.g., calcium and phosphorus. We have previously demonstrated that PTH rapidly stimulated(More)
