Gene RIF (36)

25805816 WNK4 is a substrate of SFKs and the association of c-Src and PTP-1D with WNK4 at Tyr(1092) and Tyr(1143) plays an important role in modulating the inhibitory effect of WNK4 on ROMK
25344677 knockdown of KCNJ1 in HK-2 cells promoted cell proliferation. Collectively, these data highlight that KCNJ1, low-expressed in ccRCC and associated with poor prognosis, plays an important role in ccRCC cell growth and metastasis
25165391 The association between polymorphisms in KCNJ1, SLC12A1, and 7 other genes and calcium intake and colorectal neoplasia risk was studied.
23782368 Molecular analysis revealed a compound heterozygous mutation in the KCNJ1 gene, consisting of a novel K76E and an already described V315G mutation, both affecting functional domains of the channel protein.
23211697 Findings suggest that 11q24 is a susceptible locus for openness, with KCNJ1 as the possible candidate gene.
22907731 A KCNJ1 SNP was associated with increased FG during HCTZ treatment.
21631963 no mutation in the KCNJ1 gene, among patients suffering from bartter and Gitelman syndromes
21355052 PI3K-activating hormones inhibit ROMK by enhancing its endocytosis via a mechanism that involves phosphorylation of WNK1 by Akt1 and SGK1.
21081491 THGP modulation of ROMK function confers a new role of THGP on renal ion transport and may contribute to salt wasting observed in FJHN/MCKD-2/GCKD patients.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
