We investigated the effect of high phosphorus content on the sodium-phosphate cotransporter (NaPi-IIa and NaPi-IIl). Forty-eight Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3 groups: high-phosphorus group (HP) with fructose diphosphate sodium injection; self-manufactured low-phosphorus diet group (LP); and normal diet group (NP). At the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th weeks, 4 rats from each group were sacrificed for detecting serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, and intact parathyroid hormone.
We established a rat model of hyperphosphatemia and investigated the systemic effects of high phosphorus (P). Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into high (HP), low (LP), and normal (NP) P groups (N = 12 each), which received injections of fructose diphosphate sodium, or were fed self-manufactured low phosphorus or normal diets, respectively. In each group, 4 rats were sacrificed at the first, third, and sixth week to detect the serum (Scr) and urinary creatinine and P, and calcium (Ca) levels.
