56 SGLT2 belongs to the family of sodium glucose co-transporters.
Therefore these co-transporters are an example of secondary active transport.
Quantification of mRNA levels of the Na-Pi co-transporters showed a significant increase of NaPi-IIb mRNA levels in the ileum of chickens fed the 0.
To determine the effects of dietary Pi on the expression of the chicken intestinal Na-Pi co-transporter, experimental diets were formulated to be deficient in total Pi.
It appears that a major function of circulating FGF23 is the control of the expression of the renal tubular sodium dependent phosphate co-transporters (NaPi 2a and 2c) and thus renal tubular phosphate reabsorption.
Type II co-transporters facilitate the majority of tubular phosphate reabsorption and are the main target for regulating phosphate by PTH and dietary phosphate content.
