The calcineurin inhibitor tacrolimus activates the renal sodium chloride cotransporter to cause hypertension
Calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) are immunosuppressive drugs that are used widely to prevent rejection of transplanted organs and to treat autoimmune disease. Hypertension and renal tubule dysfunction,Expand

2.5D gait biometrics using the Depth Gradient Histogram Energy Image
Using gait recognition methods, people can be identified by the way they walk. The most successful and efficient of these methods are based on the Gait Energy Image (GEI). In this paper, we extendExpand

A SPAK isoform switch modulates renal salt transport and blood pressure.
The renal thick ascending limb (TAL) and distal convoluted tubule (DCT) play central roles in salt homeostasis and blood pressure regulation. An emerging model suggests that bumetanide- andExpand

Localization of thiazide-sensitive Na(+)-Cl(-) cotransport and associated gene products in mouse DCT.
The mammalian distal nephron develops a complex assembly of specialized cell types to accomplish the fine adjustment of urinary electrolyte composition. The epithelia of the distal convoluted tubuleExpand

Expression of the thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter in rat and human kidney.
An electroneutral thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransport pathway (TSC) has been localized functionally to the distal convoluted tubule (DCT), although the TSC has also been detected in the connectingExpand

Localization of organic cation transporters OCT1 and OCT2 in rat kidney.
Renal excretion and reabsorption of organic cations are mediated by electrogenic and electroneutral organic cation transporters, which belong to a recently discovered family of polyspecificExpand

Developmental expression of sodium entry pathways in rat nephron.
During the past several years, sites of expression of ion transport proteins in tubules from adult kidneys have been described and correlated with functional properties. Less information is availableExpand

Identification of a Novel A-kinase Anchoring Protein 18 Isoform and Evidence for Its Role in the Vasopressin-induced Aquaporin-2 Shuttle in Renal Principal Cells*
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) increases the water permeability of renal collecting duct principal cells by inducing the fusion of vesicles containing the water channel aquaporin-2 (AQP2) with the plasmaExpand

WNK1-related Familial Hyperkalemic Hypertension results from an increased expression of L-WNK1 specifically in the distal nephron
Significance Hypertension, one of the most common morbidity factors worldwide, is caused mostly by a deregulation of salt transport by the kidney, but underlying mechanisms remain elusive. TheExpand
