Intestinal hyperabsorption of oxalate occurs secondary to some intestinal disorders1 but can also be associated with mild hyperoxaluria in the absence of intestinal disease2. Intestinal transport of oxalate appears to be a diffusive mechanism3 dependent on the oxalic acid concentration gradient. This transport appears to be affected by the presence of an oxalate binding protein4 whose physiological significance has not been established. The following paper describes the partial purification of this protein from rabbit small intestine.
