Type II Na+-Pi cotransporters in osteoblast mineral formation: Regulation by inorganic phosphate


Lundquist, P; Murer, H; Biber, J (2007). Type II Na+-Pi cotransporters in osteoblast mineral formation: Regulation by inorganic phosphate. Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 19(1-4):43-56.

Abstract

During calcification of bone, large amounts of phosphate (P(i)) must be transported from the circulation to the osteoid. Likely candidates for osteoblast P(i) transport are the type II sodium-phosphate cotransporters NaPi-IIa and NaPi-IIb that facilitate transcellular P(i) flux in kidney and intestine, respectively. We have therefore determined the 'cotransporters' expression in osteoblast-like cells. We have also studied the 'cotransporters' regulation by P(i) and during mineralization in vitro. Phosphate uptake and cotransporter protein expression was investigated at early, late and mineralizing culture stages of mouse (MC3T3-E1) and rat (UMR-106) osteoblast-like cells. Both NaPi-IIa and NaPi-IIb were expressed by both osteoblast-like cell lines. NaPi-IIa was upregulated in both cell lines one week after confluency. After 7 days in 3mM P(i) NaPi-IIa was strongly upregulated in both cell lines. NaPi-IIb expression was unaffected by both culture stage and P(i) supplementation. The expression of both cotransporters was unaffected by P(i) deprivation. In vitro mineralization at 1.5mM P(i) was preceded by a three-fold increase in osteoblast sodium-dependent P(i) uptake and a corresponding upregulation of both NaPi-IIa and NaPi-IIb. Their expression thus seem regulated by phosphate in a manner consistent with their playing a role in transcellular P(i) flux during mineralization. Copyright 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
