When proton pumps go sour: Urinary acidification and kidney stones


Wagner, C A (2008). When proton pumps go sour: Urinary acidification and kidney stones. Kidney International, 73(10):1103-1105.

Abstract

H(+)-ATPases mediate urinary acidification along the collecting duct, and mutations in their B1 and a4 subunits result in distal renal tubular acidosis. The pathomechanisms by which these mutations affect pump activity are only poorly understood. Common polymorphisms may impair pump activity and may link the pump to a higher risk for alkaline urine and the development of kidney stones.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
