Shaun; Ly, Kevin; Ying Ke; Teesdale-Spittle, Paul; Snyder, Peter M.; McDonald, Fiona J. // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 8, p1 

    Background: The epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) is an integral component of the pathway for Na+ absorption in epithelial cells. The ubiquitin ligases Nedd4 and Nedd4-2 bind to ENaC and decrease its activity. Conversely, Serum- and Glucocorticoid regulated Kinase-1 (SGK1), a downstream mediator...

    Alteration of the dietary intake of phosphate (P1) leads to rapid changes in renal P1 transport activity. The present study, examined the underlying cellular mechanisms of the rapid regulation, with special reference to renal P1 cotransporter. Rats were fed either a low-P1 (0.02%) diet (CLP...

    Abstract  Epithelial cell migration plays an important role in gastrointestinal mucosal repair. We previously reported that multiple functional ion channels, including a Ba2+-sensitive K+ inward rectifier Kir1.2, 4-aminopyridine (4-AP)-sensitive voltage-gated K+ channels Kv1.1, Kv1.6 and...

    In voltage-gated sodium, potassium and calcium channels, the functions of ion conduction and voltage sensing are performed by two distinct structural units: the pore domain and the voltage-sensing domain (VSD). In the hydrogen voltage-gated channel 1 (Hv1), the VSD, unusually, performs both...

    The Na+-retaining hormone aldosterone increases the cell-surface expression of the luminal epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and the basolateral Na+ pump (Na,K-ATPase) in aldosterone-sensitive distal nephron cells in a coordinated fashion. To address the question of whether aldosterone-induced...

    Amiloride is a widely used diuretic that blocks epithelial sodium channels (ENaCs). These heterotrimeric transmembrane proteins, assembled from β, γ and α or δ subunits, effectively control water transport across epithelia and sodium influx into non-epithelial cells. The functional...

  • The role of the epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) in high AVP but low aldosterone states. Stockand, James D. // Frontiers in Physiology;Jul2012, Vol. 3, p1 

    Due to the abundance of seminal discoveries establishing a strong causal relation between changes in aldosterone signaling, the activity of the epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) and blood pressure, the role of ENaC in health and disease is understood almost exclusively through the concept that this...
