1.H.1.1.7
Claudin 8 (225aas) is required for localization of Claudin 4 (TC# 1.H.1.1.6) to the kidney tight junctions (Hou et al., 2010). Bartter's syndrome patients have a single nucleotide substitution of C for T at position 451 of the claudin-8 gene sequence that changes the amino acid residue from serine to proline at position 151 in the second extracellular domain of the claudin-8 gene (Chen et al., 2009).
