Saturation Kinetics of Phosphate Reabsorption in Rats
It is a well known fact that increasing plasma concentration of phosphate is followed by enhancement of phosphate clearance, a finding which has been ascribed to saturation of phosphate reab-sorption. However, although it has been possible to determine a maximal transport rate for a given experimental situation, further description of the kinetics has not been possible with the use of clearance techniques.
