Biochemical Studies of the Control of Renal Tubular Phosphate Reabsorption
The proximal tubule of the kidney is the site of several important physiological processes including the reabsorbtion of inorganic phosphate from the glomerular filtrate and the production of glucose from intermediate metabolites. The phosphate reabsorption performed by the kidney seems to be the major controlling factor in m aintaining overall phosphate homeostasis.
