A major function of the skin is the regulation of body temperature by sweat secretions. Sweat glands secrete water and salt, especially NaCl. Excreted water evaporates, cooling the skin surface, and Na+ ions are reabsorbed by the epithelial sodium channels (ENaC). Mutations in ENaC subunit genes lead to a severe multi-system (systemic) form of pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) type I, characterized by salt loss from aldosterone target organs, including sweat glands in the skin. In this study, we… 
Epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) in GtoPdb v.2021.2
The epithelial sodium channels (ENaC) are located on the apical membrane of epithelial cells in the kidney tubules, lung, respiratory tract, male and female reproductive tracts, sweat and salivary
Mapping the sites of localization of epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and CFTR in segments of the mammalian epididymis
TLDR
To map the sites of localization of ion channels ENaC and CFTR along the length of the mouse and rat epididymis using confocal microscopic imaging, it is suggested that mutations in EN aC subunits may also be associated with male infertility.
Expression of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) in the endometrium – Implications for fertility in a patient with pseudohypoaldosteronism
TLDR
The hypothesis that lack of expression of ENaC on the endometrial surface may be responsible for the infertility of the PHA patient is supported.
High‐resolution imaging of the actin cytoskeleton and epithelial sodium channel, CFTR, and aquaporin‐9 localization in the vas deferens
TLDR
The localization of all three channels on the apical surface of the columnar epithelial cells provides clear evidence that these channels are involved concurrently in the regulation of fluid and electrolyte balance in the lumen of the vas deferens.
Localization of epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and CFTR in the germinal epithelium of the testis, Sertoli cells, and spermatozoa
TLDR
It is suggested that ENaC subunits in cytoplasmic pools in germ cells serve as the source of ENac subunits located along the tail of spermatozoa, and CFTR may have an independent role in gene regulation within the nuclei.
Identification and classification of epithelial cells in nephron segments by actin cytoskeleton patterns
TLDR
This study highlights the power of high‐resolution confocal microscopy for identifying specific cell types using the simple probe of F‐actin‐binding phalloidin to identify whole kidney sections by confocal microscopic imaging of fluorescent phalloids.

CRISPR/Cas9-Mediated α-ENaC Knockout in a Murine Pancreatic β-Cell Line
TLDR
Compared with the wild-type MIN6 cells, the cell viability and insulin content were significantly increased in α-ENaC−/−MIN6 cells generated by CRISPR/Cas9 technology added an effective tool to study the biological function of α- ENaC in pancreatic β-cells.
Cisplatin influences the skin ion transport - An in vitro study.
TLDR
It was shown that absorption of Na+ ions and release of Cl- ions was intensified than in the untreated specimens, and it was proven in the study that cisplatin influences the Na+ and Cl- transport in the skin cells.
Analysis of changes in sodium and chloride ion transport in the skin
TLDR
Assessment of transdermal ion transport changes may be a useful tool for assessing the skin condition with tendency to pain hyperactivity and hypersensitivity to xenobiotics.

TLDR
The characteristics of ENaC subunit expression in human keratinocytes are document for the first time, and suggest thatENaC may be important during differentiation.
The Epithelial Sodium Channel ENaC and its Regulators in the Epidermal Permeability Barrier Function
TLDR
A role of ENaC in the maturation of barrier function rather than in the prenatal generation of the barrier, and may be as such an important modulator for skin hydration, is suggested.
Epithelial Na+ channel delta subunit mediates acid-induced ATP release in the human skin.
TLDR
A novel physiological function of ENaCdelta is shown in peripheral tissues in humans and may be involved in the mechanism underlying pH sensing followed by the regulation of cell viability in the human skin.
The ENaC channel is required for normal epidermal differentiation.
TLDR
Data suggest that the epithelial sodium channel modulates ionic signaling for specific aspects of epidermal differentiation, such as synthesis or processing of differentiation- specific proteins, and lipid secretion.
Epithelial sodium channels (ENaC) are uniformly distributed on motile cilia in the oviduct and the respiratory airways
TLDR
Findings indicate that ENaC functions as a regulator of the osmolarity of the periciliary fluid bathing the cilia, and requires reevaluation of the mechanisms of action of CFTR and other modulators of EN aC function.
Epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) family: Phylogeny, structure-function, tissue distribution, and associated inherited diseases.

A comparative overview of the genotype-phenotype relationships in inherited diseases associated with ENaC mutations, including multisystem pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA1B), Liddle syndrome, cystic fibrosis-like disease and essential hypertension is presented.
Activation of the epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) requires CFTR Cl- channel function
TLDR
It is reported here that, in freshly isolated normal sweat ducts, ENaC activity is dependent on, and increases with, CFTR activity, and it is found that the primary defect in Cl- permeability in cystic fibrosis is accompanied secondarily by a Na+ conductance in this tissue that cannot be activated.

The cellular localizations of Na(+)/H(+) exchanger 1 (NHE1), cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), potassium channel (KC), epithelial sodium channel γ (γENaC) and vacuolar-type H+-ATPase (V- ATPase) in human eccrine sweat glands and epidermis were detected using immunofluorescence labeling.

Recent in vitro and in vivo experiments indicate that membrane-bound serine proteases are of critical importance in the activation of ENaC in different organs, such as the kidney, the lung, or the cochlea.
Epithelial sodium channels are upregulated during epidermal differentiation.
TLDR
The co-ordinated expression of subunits suggests that epithelial sodium channels may play an important part in both epidermal differentiation and skin development, presumably by modulating ion transport required forEpidermal terminal differentiation.
