The epithelial Na(+) channel (ENaC) plays an essential role in the regulation of whole body Na(+) balance and blood pressure. The cell surface expression of this channel, a complex of three subunits (alpha, beta and gamma ENaC), has been shown to be regulated by hormones such as aldosterone and vasopressin and by intracellular signaling, including(More)
Liddle's syndrome is a form of inherited hypertension linked to mutations in the genes encoding the epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC). These mutations alter or delete PY motifs involved in protein-protein interactions with a ubiquitin-protein ligase, Nedd4. Here we show that Na+ transporting cells, derived from mouse cortical collecting duct, express two Nedd4(More)
The epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) is a heteromeric protein complex playing a fundamental role in Na+ homeostasis and blood pressure regulation. Specific mutations inactivating PY motifs in ENaC C termini cause Liddle's syndrome, an inherited form of hypertension. Previously we showed that these PY motifs serve as binding sites for the E3 enzyme Nedd4-2,(More)
Src-like adaptor protein 2 (SLAP-2) is a hematopoietic adaptor protein previously implicated as a negative regulator of T-cell antigen receptor (TCR)-mediated signaling. SLAP-2 contains an SH3 and an SH2 domain, followed by a unique carboxyl-terminal tail, which is important for c-Cbl binding. Here we describe a novel role for SLAP-2 in regulation of the(More)
Ubiquitylation has emerged as an important mechanism for controlling surface expression of membrane proteins. This post-translational modification involves the sequential action of several enzymes including a ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1, a ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 and a ubiquitin-protein ligase E3. E3s are responsible for substrate recognition.(More)
The epithelial Na(+) channel (ENaC), which plays an essential role in renal Na(+) handling, is composed of three subunits (alpha beta gamma), each containing a conserved PY motif at the C terminus. In Liddle's syndrome, an inherited form of salt-sensitive hypertension, the PY motifs of either beta or gamma ENaC are deleted or modified. We have recently(More)
