CLCNKB-T481S and essential hypertension in a Ghanaian population

It is concluded that CLCNKB-T481S is associated with essential hypertension in males within the Ghanaian population; however, further studies are needed to understand its sex and ethnic segregation as well as to identify cellular factors that account for the divergent functional expression of ClC-Kb-T482S plus barttin in Xenopus oocytes and mammalian cells.

Thick Ascending Limb Sodium Transport in the Pathogenesis of Hypertension.

The role of the thick ascending limb in the development of hypertension is discussed, not as a sole participant, but one that works within the rich biological context of the renal medulla, and the physiopathological changes occurring in both genetic and induced animal models of hypertension are explored.

Hypertension in African Populations: Review and Computational Insights

In silico methods are utilized to elucidate biological processes that will aid in identifying novel drug targets for the treatment of resistant hypertension in an African population and co-expressed genes were identified as they are controlled by the same transcriptional regulatory program and may potentially be more effective as multiple drug targets in the treatment regimens for HTN.

Digenic mutations involving both the BSND and GJB2 genes detected in Bartter syndrome type IV.

Genetic and Environmental Risks for High Blood Pressure Among African American Mothers and Daughters

A gene × environmental interaction with rs8179526 has a protective effect on SBP in African-American women with high sodium intake and awareness of both the protective and deleterious properties of rs8 179526 may one day assist in determining appropriate treatment plans.

Barttin Regulates the Subcellular Localization and Posttranslational Modification of Human Cl-/H+ Antiporter ClC-5

Findings show that barttin regulates the subcellular localization not only of kidney ClC-K channels but also of theClC-5 transporter, and suggest that ClC/H+ antiporter might potentially play a role not only in kidney proximal tubules but also in tubular kidney segments expressing barttin.

Effects of adenosine stimulation on the mRNA expression of CLCNKB in the basolateral medullary thick ascending limb of the rat kidney.

The findings indicated that adenosine increased the mRNA expression of CLCNKB in primary cultures of medullary TAL cells, and this stimulatory effect was regulated by the cAMP‑PKA and PLA2‑arachidonic acid (AA) pathways.

Genetic studies of African populations: an overview on disease susceptibility and response to vaccines and therapeutics

In this review, this review gives special attention to many of the past and ongoing studies, emphasizing those in Sub-Saharan Africans that address the role of genetic variation in human disease.

A likelihood ratio test of population Hardy‐Weinberg equilibrium for case‐control studies

A unified framework enables us to infer the disease‐genotype association when a detected DHWE needs to be part of the model after causes for the DHWE are explored.



Evaluation of selected polymorphisms of the Mendelian hypertensive disease genes in the Japanese population.

The data did not support the association between Mendelian disease gene variants and essential hypertension in the Japanese and did not definitively resolve this issue, but further investigation is certainly warranted.

Protective Effect of the KCNMB1 E65K Genetic Polymorphism Against Diastolic Hypertension in Aging Women and Its Relevance to Cardiovascular Risk

This study provides the first genetic evidence for the different impact of the BK channel in the control of human blood pressure in men and women, with particular relevance in aging women, and highlights the E65K polymorphism as one of the strongest genetic factors associated thus far to protection against myocardial infarction and stroke.

Gain-of-function mutation in the KCNMB1 potassium channel subunit is associated with low prevalence of diastolic hypertension.

The BK-beta(1E65K) channel might offer a more efficient negative-feedback effect on vascular smooth muscle contractility, consistent with a protective effect of the K allele against the severity of diastolic hypertension.

Genetic variants in the epithelial sodium channel in relation to aldosterone and potassium excretion and risk for hypertension.

Several lines of evidence are presented to suggest that ENaC activity is higher in blacks than in whites, which could contribute to racial differences in Na retention and the risk for hypertension.

Renal tubular transport and the genetic basis of hypertensive disease

Several monogenic hypertensive disorders are caused by genetic mutations leading to the deranged function and/or regulation of renal tubular NaCl transport, such as mutations of the renal epithelial

Mutation of BSND causes Bartter syndrome with sensorineural deafness and kidney failure

The identification by positional cloning of a new gene, BSND, as the cause of Antenatal Bartter syndrome is reported, which encodes a hitherto unknown protein with two putative transmembrane α-helices that might function as a regulator for ion-transport proteins involved in aBS, or else as a new transporter or channel itself.

Mutations in the chloride channel gene, CLCNKB, cause Bartter's syndrome type III

The critical role of CLCNKB in renal salt reabsorption and blood–pressure homeostasis is demonstrated, and the potential role of specific C LCNKB antagonists as diuretic antihypertensive agents is demonstrated.

Genetic variations related to hypertension: a review

This review attempts to summarize present known genetic variations that may be implicated in the pathogenesis of hypertension and to discuss various research strategies used to identify them.

Barttin increases surface expression and changes current properties of ClC-K channels

It is shown that barttin functions as an activator of ClC-K chloride channels, and regulation of a CLC chloride channel by an accessory protein and indicate that Cl C-K activation by barttin is required for adequate tubular salt reabsorption.

A frameshift mutation of β subunit of epithelial sodium channel in a case of isolated Liddle syndrome

A frameshift mutation of the β subunit caused by a single cytosine insertion at the codon 595, introducing a new stop codon at 605 and deleting the last 34 amino acids from the normally encoded protein is found within this family.
