45Ca uptake in mineralizing tissues may occur by net Ca uptake or by isotopic exchange. It is rarely possible to differentiate between these effects, making interpretation of the findings difficult. Unfortunately, this problem is not often considered, and 45Ca uptake is usually regarded as representative of only net calcium uptake. The study reported here… CONTINUE READING
