Effect of Serum Calcium on Phosphate Transport

  • Wadi N. Suki
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 178)


An effect of serum calcium on renal phosphate excretion has been invoked by a number of investigators both in experimental animals and in man. These effects are complex and may be attributable to changes in the filtered load of phosphate or in the tubular handling of phosphate. These effects will be discussed separately.
