Calcium homeostasis during hibernation and in mechanical environments disrupting calcium homeostasis

Arfat, Yasir; Rani, Andleeb; Jingping, Wang; Hocart, Charles


To maintain calcium homeostasis during physical inactivity, precise coordination is necessary between diferent organs of the body. There are a number of factors which alter an organism's calcium balance, such as growth, aging, physical inactivity and acquired or inherited disorders which ultimately lead to bone loss. In non-hibernating mammals, physical inactivity causes bone loss which may not be completely recoverable during the lifespan of an individual despite a resumption of activity....[Show more]
