Disorders of Phosphorus Balance
Phosphorus is an important intracellular constitu-ent. Its presence is required for the synthesis of the phospholipids and phosphoproteins in cell membranes and intracellular organelles, (2) the phosphonucleotides involved in protein synthesis and reproduction, and (3) ATP used for the storage of energy. Only 0.1% of total body phosphorus is in ECF; 85% is in bone and 15% is intracellular.
