Background: The extracellulardomain of Klotho is cleaved and releasedinto various extracellular fluids, suchas blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid, assoluble α-Klotho (sαKl). Methods: We measuredsαKl in 53 hemodialysis patients and20 healthy controls to examine its role inmineral metabolism. Results: The sαKl levelof the hemodialysis patients was 430 pg/ml (386 - 540 pg/ml, which was lower than thatof healthy controls 740 pg/ml (550 - 913 pg/ml, p < 0.01). The serum sαKl level showeda positive correlation with serum phosphorus (P) (σ = 0.33, p = 0.014), while serum corrected Ca tended to be negatively correlatedwith sαKl (σ = -0.26, p = 0.06). Both parametersshowed the same trends in healthysubjects. However, there was no significantassociation between serum sαKl and age (σ= 0.21, p = 0.14), intact PTH (σ = -0.08, p= 0.55), whole PTH (σ = -0.08, p = 0.59), or FGF23 (σ = -0.07, p = 0.62). Multipleregression analysis showed that P was independentlyassociated with the serum sαKl levels (total adjusted R2 = 0.18, p = 0.02). Conclusions: The sαKl level was lower inhemodialysis patients than in healthy persons. Serum P level was independently associatedwith the serum sαKl level.
