Recent advances in molecular biology have characterised a new class of chloride channels (CLCs) that are referred to as voltage-gated CLCs. To date nine such voltage-gated CLCs (CLC-1 to CLC-7, CLC-Ka and CLC-Kb, which are encoded by the genes CLCN1 to CLCN7, CLC-Ka and CLC-Kb, respectively) have been identified in mammals. Mutations in two of these, CLC-5 and CLC-Kb, have been defined in the hypercalciuric nephrolithiasis disorders of Dent's disease and a form of Bartter's syndrome… CONTINUE READING
