The transport of phosphate in intestinal brush-border membrane and parotid basolateral membrane vesicles isolated from sheep maintained on high and low phosphate diets have been studied. The mechanism of the transport of phosphate in the intestine is via a proton symporter whilst in the parotid gland it is effected by a Na+ coupled transporter. In sheep fed a low-P diet there is no change in the capacity of the parotid basolateral membrane to transport phosphate into the parotid end piece cells… CONTINUE READING
