Regulation of epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) expression in the kidney is critical to the maintenance of extracellular Na+ and volume homeostasis. This in turn plays an important role in blood pressure control, as illustrated by the observation that ENaC mutations cause inherited forms of hypertension (Liddle's syndrome) and hypotension (PHA type 1). The overall goal of our proposal is to elucidate signaling mechanisms and trafficking pathways that regulate ENaC. Building on our work in the previo...
