Duodenal Calcium-binding-protein (CaBP) in the Sodium Deficient Growing Rat
During the past decade a specific calcium binding protein (CaBP) was detected in the intestinal mucosa of several species (6, 11). The exact role of this protein is not yet clearly defined. There is, however, a high direct correlation between CaBP and the duodenal capacity to transport calcium under definite conditions known to alter calcium absorption.
