Filtered inorganic phosphate (Pi) is largely reabsorbed in the proximal tubule. Na-Pi cotransport, with a stoichiometry of at least 2:1, mediates uphill transport at the apical membrane; at the basolateral membrane different types of transport systems can be involved in efflux and uptake of Pi from the interstitium. Regulation of transcellular Pi flux involves alteration of the apical Na-Pi cotransport; at least three different cellular control/sensing systems seem to participate in this… CONTINUE READING
