Abstract

Purpose of reviewThe current review examines what is known about the FGF-23/α-Klotho co-dependent and independent pathophysiological effects, and whether FGF-23 and/or α-Klotho are potential therapeutic targets.Recent findingsFGF-23 is a hormone derived mainly from bone, and α-Klotho is a transmembrane protein. Together they form a trimeric signaling complex with FGFRs in target tissues to mediate the physiological functions of FGF-23. Local and systemic factors control FGF-23 release from osteoblast/osteocytes in bone, and circulating FGF-23 activates FGFR/α-Klotho complexes in kidney proximal and distal renal tubules to regulate renal phosphate excretion, 1,25 (OH)2D metabolism, sodium and calcium reabsorption, and ACE2 and α-Klotho expression. The resulting bone-renal-cardiac-immune networks provide a new understanding of bone and mineral homeostasis, as well as identify other biological effects FGF-23. Direct FGF-23 activation of FGFRs in the absence of α-Klotho is proposed to mediate cardiotoxic and adverse innate immune effects of excess FGF-23, particularly in chronic kidney disease, but this FGF-23, α-Klotho-independent signaling is controversial. In addition, circulating soluble Klotho (sKl) released from the distal tubule by ectodomain shedding is proposed to have beneficial health effects independent of FGF-23.SummarySeparation of FGF-23 and α-Klotho independent functions has been difficult in mammalian systems and understanding FGF-23/α-Klotho co-dependent and independent effects are incomplete. Antagonism of FGF-23 is important in treatment of hypophosphatemic disorders caused by excess FGF-23, but its role in chronic kidney disease is uncertain. Administration of recombinant sKl is an unproven therapeutic strategy that theoretically could improve the healt span and lifespan of patients with α-Klotho deficiency.
