Intra-renal and subcellular distribution of the human chloride channel, CLC-5, reveals a pathophysiological basis for Dent's disease.
Dent's disease, which is a renal tubular disorder characterized by low molecular weight proteinuria, hypercalciuria and nephrolithiasis, is associated with inactivating mutations of the X-linked chloride channel, CLC-5. However, the manner in which a functional loss of CLC-5 leads to such diverse renal abnormalities remains to be defined. In order to elucidate this, we performed studies to determine the segmental expression of CLC-5 in the human kidney and to define its intracellular distribu...Expand abstract
