Stanniocalcin 1 and stanniocalcin 2 are two glycoprotein hormones, which act as calcium phosphate-regulating factor on intestine and kidney. We have previously reported that stanniocalcin 2 expression is positively and negatively controlled by 1,25(OH)(2)D(3) and parathyroid hormone in renal proximal tubular cells. However, it has been unclear whether they(More)
Members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 19 subfamily, including FGF23, FGF15/19, and FGF21, have a role as endocrine factors which influence the metabolism of inorganic phosphate (Pi) and vitamin D, bile acid, and energy. It has been reported that dietary Pi regulates circulating FGF23. In this study, the short-term effects of dietary Pi restriction(More)
The type IIa sodium-dependent phosphate co-transporter (Npt2a) is important to maintain renal inorganic phosphate (Pi) homeostasis and the plasma Pi levels. It has reported that disorder of Pi metabolism in kidney can be risk factors for cardiovascular disease as well as hypercholesterolemia. However, the relationship between Pi and cholesterol metabolism(More)
Histamine is suggested to play a role in mammary gland growth regulation, differentiation and functioning during pregnancy and lactation. Two pools of histamine are thought to be involved in these processes: mastocyte- and epithelial cell related histamine. In the present study we focused on epithelial cells. Immunohistochemistry has shown that the(More)
