These studies, funded by NIH for nearly 20 years, have focused on the vitamin D-dependent calcium-binding protein (calbindin) in rodents and, more recently, on parathyroid hormone-related protein and its receptor in the human utero-placental unit.
Two factors in the transcellular path of absorption that are involved in the uphill transport of calcium can be implicated as part of the discriminatory process, these being the high-affinity calcium-binding protein, calbindin, that presumably serves to increase the intracellular diffusion of calcium, and the plasma membrane ATP-dependent calcium-pump that actively extrudes calcium from the enterocyte [9].
