The objective of this study is to identify ATP6V1B1, ATP6V0A4 and SLC4A1 genes mutations and assess audiologic characteristics in six Chinese children with primary distal renal tubular acidosis from four unrelated families between the ages of 2 and 13 years. Both ATP6V0A4 and ATP6V1B1 genes were preferentially screened in all index cases by direct sequence(More)
BACKGROUND Gitelman's syndrome is a mild autosomal recessive disorder caused by inactivating mutations of SLC12A3. However, severe phenotype may be associated with compound heterozygous nonfunctional variants such as frameshift and splicing mutations. Because most multi-exon genes are alternatively spliced as shown by recent studies, SLC12A3, with 26 exons,(More)
BACKGROUND Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common form of secondary hypertension, while Gitelman's syndrome (GS) is the most common inherited renal tubular disease. However, coexistence of these two diseases has never been previously reported. AIM AND SUBJECTS: The aim of our study was to describe the association of GS and PA in two unrelated(More)
OBJECTIVE Frequent studies have confirmed that homozygous or compound heterozygous loss-of-function mutation p.Thr60Met in NaCl cotransporter (NCC) lead to the salt-wasting Gitelman's syndrome (GS) of hypotension. The finding that Thr60 is a key SPAK/OSR1 phosphorylation site on NCC also raises the possible importance of Thr60 in regulating the activity of(More)
Mutations in SLC4A1, encoding the chloride-bicarbonate exchanger AE1, cause distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA), a disease of defective urinary acidification by the distal nephron. We searched for SLC4A1 gene mutations in six patients from a Chinese family with a severe phenotype of dRTA (growth impairment, severe metabolic acidosis, with/or without gross(More)
BACKGROUND Gitelman's syndrome (GS) is an autosomal recessive renal tubular disorder, which is caused by the mutations in SLC12A3. This study was designed to analyze the characteristics of the genotype and phenotype, and follow-up in the largest group of Chinese patients with GS. METHODS Sixty-seven patients with GS underwent SLCl2A3 analysis, and their(More)
Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is a rare genetic disease characterized by excessive oxalate accumulation in plasma and urine, resulting in various phenotypes because of allelic and clinical heterogeneity. This study aimed to detect disease-associated genetic mutations in three PH1 patients in a Chinese family. All AGXT exons and 3 common polymorphisms(More)
BACKGROUND Twenty-six HOGA1 mutations have been reported in primary hyperoxaluria (PH) type 3 (PH3) patients with c.700 + 5G>T accounting for about 50% of the total alleles. However, PH3 has never been described in Asians. METHODS A Chinese child with early-onset nephrolithiasis was suspected of having PH. We searched for AGXT, GRHPR and HOGA1 gene(More)
Familial renal glycosuria (FRG) is caused by mutations in the SLC5A2 gene, which codes for Na(+)-glucose co-transporters 2 (SGLT2). The aim of this study was to analyze and identify the mutations in 16 patients from 8 families with FRG. All coding regions, including intron-exon boundaries, were analyzed using PCR followed by direct sequence analysis. Six(More)
