We have isolated two cDNA clones, NaPi-2 and NaPi-3, by screening rat kidney cortex and human kidney cortex cDNA libraries, respectively, for expression of sodium-dependent phosphate transport in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Substrate specificity and a detailed kinetic analysis (Na, Pi, H+ concentrations) suggested that expressed uptake activities relate to(More)
A cDNA library from rabbit kidney cortex was screened for expression of Na-dependent transport of phosphate (Pi) using Xenopus laevis oocytes as an expression system. A single clone was eventually isolated (designated NaPi-1) that stimulated expression of Na/Pi cotransport approximately 700-fold compared to total mRNA. The predicted sequence of the Na/Pi(More)
Filtered inorganic phosphate (Pi) is largely reabsorbed in the proximal tubule. Na-Pi cotransport, with a stoichiometry of at least 2:1, mediates uphill transport at the apical membrane; at the basolateral membrane different types of transport systems can be involved in efflux and uptake of Pi from the interstitium. Regulation of transcellular Pi flux(More)
The two electrode voltage clamp technique was used to investigate the steady-state and presteady-state kinetic properties of the type II Na+/P i cotransporter NaPi-5, cloned from the kidney of winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) and expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Steady-state P i -induced currents had a voltage-independent apparent K m for(More)
This first German evidence-based guideline for cutaneous melanoma was developed under the auspices of the German Dermatological Society (DDG) and the Dermatologic Cooperative Oncology Group (DeCOG) and funded by the German Guideline Program in Oncology. The recommendations are based on a systematic literature search, and on the consensus of 32 medical(More)
Polyclonal antibodies have been raised against a C-terminal peptide of NaPi-1, a recently cloned Na-Pi cotransport system of rabbit kidney cortex with a predicted (unglycosylated) molecular mass of 52 kDa. By Western blot analysis using brush-border membranes isolated from rabbit kidney cortex, two proteins with apparent molecular masses of 64 kDa and 35(More)
Poly(A)+ mRNA was isolated from rabbit kidney cortex and injected into Xenopus laevis oocytes. Injection of mRNA resulted in a time- and dose-dependent increase in Na(+)-independent uptake of L-[3H]alanine and L-[3H]arginine. L-Alanine uptake was stimulated about 3-fold and L-arginine uptake was stimulated about 8-fold after injection of mRNA (25-50 ng,(More)
As a first step within an experimental strategy (expression cloning) leading to the structural identification of the two brush-border membrane transport systems for phosphate and sulfate, we have studied the expression of Na(+)-dependent uptake of phosphate and sulfate in Xenopus laevis oocytes injected with rabbit kidney cortex poly(A)+ RNA (mRNA).(More)
The cDNA coding for a renal p-aminohippurate (PAH) transporter from winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus), designated fROAT, was cloned by functional expression in Xenopus laevis oocytes. fROAT is approximately 2.8 kbp in length and encodes a protein of 562 amino acids, related to the rat renal organic anion transporter ROAT1/OAT1 and the organic(More)
Two non-homologous proximal tubular apical Na/Pi-cotransport systems (type I and type II) have been identified thus far by expression cloning. Subsequent studies provided evidence that the type II Na/Pi-cotransporter represents a target for the physiological and pathophysiological regulation of proximal reabsorption of phosphate. The exact role of the type(More)
