Effect of Phosphorus Depletion on the Renal Transport of Phosphate

  • Thomas H. Steele
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 103)


Because phosphorus depletion is a condition with many adverse clinical consequences, it would seem desirable to have available a compensatory facility serving to promote inorganic phosphate (Pi) conservation and repletion. One very effective compensatory mechanism resides within the kidney.
