Previously, it was thought that intestinal phosphate transport occurred exclusively in the proximal small intestine of rodents and humans. However, a recent study has demonstrated that the ileum of mice contributes significantly to the absorption of dietary phosphate, but it is not known whether this region is also an important site of phosphate absorption in the rat. In the present study, we have investigated the mRNA and protein levels of the sodium-phosphate cotransporter, NaPi-IIb, in three… CONTINUE READING
