OBJECTIVE To examine expression profile of magnesium responsive genes (MRGs) in placentas of normoevolutive and preeclamptic women. METHODS The expression profiles of MRGs were determined in placentas of normoevolutive (N=26) and preeclamptic (N=25) women by RT-qPCR. RESULTS Among all tested MRGs (9) only SLC41A1 (encoding for Na(+)/Mg(2+) exchanger)(More)
CNNM2 is associated with the regulation of serum Mg concentration, and when mutated, with severe familial hypomagnesemia. The function and cellular localization of CNNM2 and its isomorphs (Iso) remain controversial. The objective of this work was to examine the following: (1) the transcription-responsiveness of CNNM2 to Mg starvation, (2) the cellular(More)
