Homeostasis of inorganic phosphate (Pi) is primarily an affair of the kidneys. Reabsorption of the bulk of filtered Pi occurs along the renal proximal tubule and is initiated by apically localized Na+-dependent Pi cotransporters. Tubular Pi reabsorption and therefore renal excretion of Pi is controlled by a number of hormones, including phosphatonins, and… CONTINUE READING
