Phosphoryl oligosaccharides of calcium (POs-Ca) are a highly soluble calcium source and can keep the solubility of calcium and fluoride ions. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of calcium (from POs-Ca) and fluoride ions penetrate into subsurface enamel lesions in vitro.

The goal of the study was to assess calcium alone and Aquamin, a multi-mineral natural product that contains magnesium and detectable levels of 72 trace elements in addition to calcium, for capacity t...
The interactions between dissolved organic matter (DOM) and mineral particles are critical for the stabilization of soil organic matter in terrestrial ecosystems. The processing of DOM by ectomycorrhi...
Fracture fixation in weak bone is still a clinical challenge. Screw augmentation was shown to successfully increase their primary stability. The currently used calcium phosphate or polymeric bone ceme...
Several types of oligosaccharides are used in infant formula to improve the gut microbiota of formula-fed infants. We previously reported that a combination of 3 oligosaccharides (lactulose, raffinose...
To meet the fetus's calcium demand in the 3rd trimester as much as 300~500 mg/day, intestinal calcium absorption in pregnant women is upregulated, without comparable increase in bone resorption. On th...
Gut hormones have therapeutic potential in the prevention and treatment obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Rodent evidence suggests that calcium may stimulate gut hormone secretion. Eviden...
We, the investigators at the University of Wisconsin, hypothesized that ingesting calcium tablets prior to a spine bone density scan will not affect the bone mineral density as measured by...
Gut hormones have therapeutic potential in the prevention and treatment obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Rodent evidence suggests that calcium may potentiate the effects of protein inges...
A prospective, randomized, controlled multicenter trial to evaluate 1.25 mmol/L (physiological) vs. 1.5 mmol/L calcium dialysate on serum markers of mineral metabolism, secondary hyperpara...
Accumulating evidence indicated that renal calcium stone formers often exhibit a low bone density. Therefore we want to test the hypothesis, that the mineral (calcium) metabolism is differ...
Calcium fluoride. Occurring in nature as the mineral fluorite or fluorspar. It is the primary source of fluorine and its compounds. Pure calcium fluoride is used as a catalyst in dehydration and dehydrogenation and is used to fluoridate drinking water. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Oligosaccharides containing various types of glycosidic linkages that yield branching or antennae. The number of antennae (such as bi-, tri-, tetra-, or penta-antennary) in the oligosaccharides on the PROTEOGLYCANS; GLYCOPROTEINS; or LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES contribute to their biological activities, such as receptor binding and metabolism.
The introduction of a phosphoryl group into a compound through the formation of an ester bond between the compound and a phosphorus moiety.
A multifunctional protein that is found primarily within membrane-bound organelles. In the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM it binds to specific N-linked oligosaccharides found on newly-synthesized proteins and functions as a MOLECULAR CHAPERONE that may play a role in PROTEIN FOLDING or retention and degradation of misfolded proteins. In addition calreticulin is a major storage form for CALCIUM and functions as a calcium-signaling molecule that can regulate intracellular calcium HOMEOSTASIS.
A basic element found in nearly all organized tissues. It is a member of the alkaline earth family of metals with the atomic symbol Ca, atomic number 20, and atomic weight 40. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and combines with phosphorus to form calcium phosphate in the bones and teeth. It is essential for the normal functioning of nerves and muscles and plays a role in blood coagulation (as factor IV) and in many enzymatic processes.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
