Albumin endocytosis in renal proximal tubule cells is a clathrin- and receptor-mediated mechanism that, in several pathophysiological conditions, is involved in initiating or promoting tubule-interstitial disease. Although much work has been done on this pathway, the regulation of albumin endocytosis in proximal tubule cells is not well understood. Here, we(More)
DeltaF508 CFTR can be functionally restored in the plasma membrane by exposure of the cell to lower temperature. However, restored DeltaF508 CFTR has a much shorter half-life than normal. We studied whether NHERF1, which binds to the PDZ motif of CFTR, might be a critical mediator in the turnover of DeltaF508 CFTR from the cell surface. We used RNAi to(More)
Apical expression of the large-conductance, calcium- and voltage-activated potassium (MaxiK) channel in the cortical collecting duct is responsible for flow-stimulated potassium secretion. Here, we identify two cytoplasmic regions controlling apical expression of the MaxiK channel. Disruption of the proximal region results in the intracellular retention of(More)
BACKGROUND Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) infections account for a large percentage of fatal hospital acquired pneumonias. One of the PA Type III secreted toxin (TTST) ExoS, a bifunctional protein with N-terminal GTPase activating protein (GAP) and C-terminal ADP rybosyl transferase (ADPRT) activities, significantly contributes to PA virulence by targeting(More)
