Transport of Calcium Across Biological Membranes

  • R. H. Wasserman
  • F. A. Kallfelz


The precipitation or the “solidification” of mineral salts in living organisms requires that certain conditions be met, among which is the presence of an adequate supply of calcium ions within the “microvicinity” of the site of mineralization. To assure that this condition prevails, various transport and regulatory mechanisms have evolved as evidenced by information from both phylogenetic and ontogenic investigations. Included here are special membrane processes and specific hormones, such as parathyroid hormone and calcitonin.
