Author information

  • 1Department of Cell Physiology, University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Abstract

The epithelial calcium channel present in the apical membrane of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3-responsive nephron segments represents the first member of a new family of calcium channels. This review covers the distinctive properties of this highly calcium-selective channel and highlights the implications for our understanding of the process of calcium reabsorption.
