Klotho, also called Klotho-alpha , is the founding member of the Klotho family within the glycosidase-1 superfamily (1, 2). Klotho is expressed in areas concerned with calcium regulation, predominantly in the kidney distal convoluted tubules, but also in the brain choroid plexus (which produces cerebrospinal fluid) and the parathyroid (1). The 1012 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein contains a 32 aa signal sequence, a 948 aa extracellular domain (ECD) containing two extracellular glycosidase-like domains, a 21 aa transmembrane domain and an 11 aa intracellular domain. Within the ECD, human Klotho shares 87%, 90%, 90% and 86% aa identity with mouse, rat, bovine and equine Klotho, respectively. Although a truncated 549 aa isoform predicts a soluble 70 kDa form, the form found in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid is a 130 kDa form produced by proteolytic cleavage of the glycosylated 135 kDa full-length Klotho (3, 4). A prominent intracellular 120 kDa form of Klotho is localized to endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi membranes (4). Klotho is named for the Greek goddess who spins the thread of life. The phenotype of Klotho‑deficient mice resembles premature aging, including arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis, skin atrophy, infertility, emphysema and premature death (2). Conversely, excess Klotho extends lifespan (5). Klotho acts as a cofactor for interaction of FGF23 with FGF R1 (6). This interaction negatively regulates 1 alpha -hydroxylase, the rate‑limiting enzyme in the synthesis of 1,25(OH)2D3 (vitamin D)(7). Klotho‑deficient mice show severe hyperphosphatemia and ectopic calcification of soft tissues due to excess vitamin D (2, 7). Both Klotho and Klotho-beta are cofactors for FGF19 binding (8). Klotho also shows glucuronidase activity which activates the renal ion channel TRPV5 to reabsorb urinary calcium (9). Klotho has been reported to downregulate insulin or IGF-1 signaling in adipocytes, to bind and antagonize Wnt molecules, and to facilitate release of parathyroid hormone (10-12).
