Sex-related differences in the effect of aluminum on calcium transport in the small intestine of the rat.


Everted sacs of distinct segments of small intestine from male and female rats were incubated with 2 microM of aluminum (Al). In duodenum, Al significantly diminished calcium flux (JCams) in cycling females (31%, P < 0.01) and in males (17%, P < 0.05). Incubation under anaerobic conditions nullified the inhibition of Al on JCams both in male and in female… (More)
