The calcium-sensing receptor directly regulates proximal tubular functions


Wagner, Carsten A The calcium-sensing receptor directly regulates proximal tubular functions. Edited by: Wagner, Carsten Alexander (2013). Kidney Int. 2013: Nature Publishing Group.

Abstract

Capasso et al. show a role of the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) in enhancing proximal tubular fluid absorption and urinary acidification by stimulation of luminal Na(+)/H(+) exchanger (NHE) activity. NHE3 is required for sodium and fluid absorption, and its activity is coupled to passive reabsorption of a major fraction of calcium through the paracellular route. These data shed new light on the regulation of the kidney by the CaSR and whether it directly affects proximal tubular functions.
