Sodium sensing in the brain

Abstract

Sodium (Na) homeostasis is crucial for life, and the Na+ level ([Na+]) of body fluids is strictly maintained at a range of 135–145 mM. However, the existence of a [Na+] sensor in the brain has long been controversial until Nax was identified as the molecular entity of the sensor. This review provides an overview of the [Na+]-sensing mechanism in the brain… (More)
