Renal vitamin D receptor expression and vitamin D renoprotection

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

7 Scopus citations


Therapy to enhance the renoprotective actions of vitamin D receptor (VDR) activation should safely overcome the distinct VDR content along the nephron to effectively control renal calcium reabsorption, control renal klotho levels for the phosphaturic actions of FGF23, and inhibit proteinuria and the activation of the renin-angiotensin system.
