The distal convoluted tubule (DCT) is the shortest segment of the nephron and consists of an early (DCT1) and late part (DCT2). Here, several transport proteins, like the thiazide-sensitive NaCl cotransporter (NCC) and the epithelial magnesium (Mg2+) channel (TRPM6), are exclusively expressed. This makes the DCT the major site of active transcellular Mg2… CONTINUE READING
