(Fig. 1 Calcium n Function: neuromuscular conduction/activation, coagulation cascade, enzyme co-factor and formation of the rigid mineral content of bone n Daily requirement: total body calcium 1100 g, 98% of which is in bone and teeth. Requirement of adult 1000 mg, adolescent 1300 mg n Absorption from gastrointestinal (GI) tract include: active transport in duodenum and facilitated diffusion in jejunum.

11 Other Potential Methods Transforming Growth Factors n Recent experiment of the use of timed release of TGF-b in PT defects reported that the cells migrated into the defect from synovial tissue and formed a fibrous matrix. 12 Appendix Regulation of Synthesis and Degradation of Cartilage n Since there are no nerves or blood vessels, it looks logical that protein synthesis may be regulated by mechanical forces and there is ample evidence to suggest that the key player in altering synthetic activity is `intermittent hydrostatic pressure'.

PTH is needed for transport across the cellular membrane and to stimulate production of 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3, while vitamin D helps form proteins to bind calcium inside cells n Of dietary calcium, 35% is absorbed. Excretory routes include both the GI tract and kidneys. 2 Calcium Regulation (Homeostasis) n Minute-to-minute control (rapid process) ± Involves transfer of calcium from bone surface to ECF in response to PTH. 3 Details of Hormonal Control n PTH: stimulated by low [Ca]. Acts by decreasing renal excretion and stimulating 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D, hence increasing GI absorption of calcium.
