The goals of this project are to understand the function of soluble isoforms of the FGF23 co-receptor Klotho.
The goal of this proposal is to test novel kidney FGF23-Klotho signaling pathways.
The goal of this proposal is to generate pilot data for integrated, larger proposals in CKD and metabolic bone disease. (White, Allen, Moe co-PI)
The goal of this proposal is to test new hypotheses on the regulation of FGF23 in vivo.
