Membrane-bound Klotho binds fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), but a soluble form of Klotho is also produced by alternative splicing or cleavage of the extracellular domain of the membrane-bound protein. The relative organ-specific contributions to the levels and effects of circulating Klotho remain unknown. We explored these issues by generating a novel… CONTINUE READING
