Abstract: Increased activity of the Na+/Li+ countertransporter (SLC) is a well-recognized intermediate phenotype of hypertension and diabetic nephropathy and may indicate a predisposition to hypertension. Previous work has attempted to link this membrane transport marker to altered Na+ reabsorption in the proximal tubule. Since the Na+/H+ exchanger (NHE) isoforms 1 and 3 are expressed in the basolateral and apical membranes of the proximal tubule, respectively, we investigated the relationship between these transport proteins and red cell SLC to examine whether the peripheral blood transport phenotype is associated with altered levels of transport proteins in the proximal tubule.
