Epithelial tight junctions contain size- and charge-selective pores that control the paracellular movement of charged and noncharged solutes. Claudins influence the charge selectivity and electrical resistance of junctions, but there is no direct evidence describing pore composition or whether pore size or density differs among cell types. To characterize paracellular pores independent of influences from charge selectivity, we profiled the `apparent permeabilities' (Papp) of a continuous series… Expand
Measuring size-dependent permeability of the tight junction using PEG profiling.
TLDR
A method for simultaneously measuring the size-dependence of apparent permeability using a continuous series of polyethylene polymers which allows quantification of both the pore and leak pathways is described. Expand

TLDR
This chapter examines the aspects of how claudins were identified and how they constitute the TJ barrier, which is the structural core of TJs. Expand
Claudins and renal salt transport
TLDR
The renal physiology ofParacellular transport and the physiological roles of claudins in kidney function are reviewed, especially claudin-2 and proximal tubule paracellular NaCl transport. Expand
Claudin-2, a component of the tight junction, forms a paracellular water channel
TLDR
It is concluded that claudin-2, but not claud in-10b, forms a paracellular water channel and thus mediates paraceocytes water transport in leaky epithelia, and Na+-drivenWater transport in the absence of an osmotic gradient indicates a single-file mechanism. Expand
Claudin‐2‐dependent Changes in Noncharged Solute Flux Are Mediated by the Extracellular Domains and Require Attachment to the PDZ‐scaffold
TLDR
It is shown that the extracellular loops alone are responsible for controlling the permeability for noncharged PEGs as well as for charge selectivity, and the cytoplasmic C‐terminal PDZ‐binding motif is required for wild‐type claudin‐2 to control permeability, suggesting a requirement for attachment to the PDZ scaffold in order to form pores.

TLDR
This chapter presents the evidence that the first extracellular domains of multiple claudin monomers fold to enclose a charge-selective paracellular ion pore with a diameter of 6.5–8 Ǻ. Expand
Tight junction pore and leak pathways: a dynamic duo.
TLDR
An integrated model in which dynamic regulation of tight junction protein interactions determines barrier function is proposed, which is not absolute but is selectively permeable and able to discriminate between solutes on the basis of size and charge. Expand
