Effect of adrenalectomy on calcium metabolism in vitamin D-treated and rachitic rats


The effect of adrenalectomy on radiocalcium distribution in rachitic and vitamin D-treated rats was studied. Adrenalectomy resulted in an increased deposition of radiocalcium in the femurs of both rachitic and vitamin D-treated rats when compared with their respective shamoperated controls. However, kinetic analysis of the data on the skeletal uptake of… (More)
