ABSTRACT Collecting duct (CD) principal cells are exposed to large physiologic variations of apical Na+ influx as a result of variations of Na(+) intake and extrarenal losses. It was shown previously that increasing intracellular [Na+] induces recruitment of Na,K-ATPase to the cell surface in a protein kinase A (PKA)-dependent manner in both native and cultured renal CD principal cells. As described previously in response to cytokines in nonrenal cells, PKA activation in response to increased intracellular [Na+] was independent of cAMP and required proteasomal activity. With the use of cultured mpkCCD(cL4) cells as a model of CD principal cells, whether cytokines and increased intracellular [Na+] share a common signaling pathway leading to cell-surface Na,K-ATPase recruitment was investigated. Results showed that two potent inducers of NF-kappaB, LPS and TNF-alpha, enhance Na+ transport and induce cell-surface Na,K-ATPase recruitment in mpkCCD(cL4) cells via cAMP-independent PKA activation. In addition, increased intracellular [Na+] after selective plasma membrane permeabilization by a low concentration of the Na+ ionophore amphotericin B (1 microg/ml) induced dissociation of the PKA catalytic subunit from p65-NF-kappaB and IkappaBalpha. Moreover, inhibitors of NF-kappaB/IkappaB dissociation prevented both Na+-dependent stimulation of PKA activity and cell-surface Na,K-ATPase recruitment. Altogether, these results revealed the presence of a novel Na+-dependent intracellular signaling pathway leading to Na,K-ATPase cell-surface recruitment via dissociation of the PKA catalytic subunit from a macromolecular complex that contains NF-kappaB and IkappaBalpha in CD epithelial cells.

    ABSTRACT: We have previously shown that IkappaB kinase-beta (IKKbeta) interacts with the epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) beta-subunit and enhances ENaC activity by increasing its surface expression in Xenopus oocytes. Here, we show that the IKKbeta-ENaC interaction is physiologically relevant in mouse polarized kidney cortical collecting duct (mpkCCDc14) cells, as RNA interference-mediated knockdown of endogenous IKKbeta in these cells by approximately 50% resulted in a similar reduction in transepithelial ENaC-dependent equivalent short circuit current. Although IKKbeta binds to ENaC, there was no detectable phosphorylation of ENaC subunits by IKKbeta in vitro. Because IKKbeta stimulation of ENaC activity occurs through enhanced channel surface expression and the ubiquitin-protein ligase Nedd4-2 has emerged as a central locus for ENaC regulation at the plasma membrane, we tested the role of Nedd4-2 in this regulation. IKKbeta-dependent phosphorylation of Xenopus Nedd4-2 expressed in HEK-293 cells occurred both in vitro and in vivo, suggesting a potential mechanism for regulation of Nedd4-2 and thus ENaC activity. 32P labeling studies utilizing wild-type or mutant forms of Xenopus Nedd4-2 demonstrated that Ser-444, a key SGK1 and protein kinase A-phosphorylated residue, is also an important IKKbeta phosphorylation target. ENaC stimulation by IKKbeta was preserved in oocytes expressing wild-type Nedd4-2 but blocked in oocytes expressing either a dominant-negative (C938S) or phospho-deficient (S444A) Nedd4-2 mutant, suggesting that Nedd4-2 function and phosphorylation by IKKbeta are required for IKKbeta regulation of ENaC. In summary, these results suggest a novel mode of ENaC regulation that occurs through IKKbeta-dependent Nedd4-2 phosphorylation at a recognized SGK1 and protein kinase A target site.

    ABSTRACT: A goal for scientists studying septic acute kidney injury (AKI) should be to formulate a conceptual model of disease that is able to coherently reconcile the molecular and inflammatory consequences of sepsis with impaired epithelial tubular function, diminished glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and ultimately kidney failure. Recent evidence has shed light on how sepsis modulates the tubular regulation of ion, glucose, urea and water transport and acid-base homeostasis in the kidney. The present review summarizes recent discoveries on changes in epithelial transport under septic and endotoxemic conditions as well as the mechanisms that link inflammation with impaired tubular membrane transport. This paper also proposes that the tubular dysfunction that is mediated by inflammation in sepsis ultimately leads to increased sodium and chloride delivery to the distal tubule and macula densa, contributing to tubuloglomerular feedback and impaired GFR. We feel that this conceptual model resolves many of the physiologic and clinical paradoxes that septic AKI presents to practicing researchers and clinicians.

    ABSTRACT: Tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) is a pleiotropic cytokine which becomes elevated in chronic inflammatory states such as hypertension and diabetes and has been found to mediate both increases and decreases in blood pressure. High levels of TNFα decrease blood pressure, whereas moderate increases in TNFα have been associated with increased NaCl retention and hypertension. The explanation for these disparate effects is not clear but could simply be due to different concentrations of TNFα within the kidney, the physiological status of the subject, or the type of stimulus initiating the inflammatory response. TNFα alters renal hemodynamics and nephron transport, affecting both activity and expression of transporters. It also mediates organ damage by stimulating immune cell infiltration and cell death. Here we will summarize the available findings and attempt to provide plausible explanations for such discrepancies.
