Molecular diagnosis of distal renal tubular acidosis in Tunisian patients: proposed algorithm for Northern Africa populations for the ATP6V1B1, ATP6V0A4 and SCL4A1 genes.
 

Author(s): Donia Elhayek, Gustavo Perez de Nanclares, Slaheddine Chouchane, Saber Hamami, Adnène Mlika, Monia Troudi, Nadia Leban, Wafa Ben Romdane, Mohamed Neji Gueddiche, Féthi El Amri, Samir Mrabet, Jemni Ben Chibani, Luis Castaño, Amel Haj Khelil, Gema Ariceta

Journal:

 

Primary distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) caused by mutations in the genes that codify for the H + -ATPase pump subunits is a heterogeneous disease with a poor phenotype-genotype correlation. Up to now, large cohorts of dRTA Tunisian patients have not been analyzed, and molecular ...

Distal renal tubular acidosis with hereditary spherocytosis.
 

Author(s): Rajiv Sinha, Indira Agarwal, Waleed M Bawazir, Lesley J Bruce

Journal: Indian Pediatr. 2013 Jul;50(7):693-5.

 

Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) and distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA), although distinct entities, share the same protein i.e. the anion exchanger1 (AE1) protein. Despite this, their coexistence has been rarely reported. We hereby describe the largest family to date with co-existence ...

Distal renal tubular acidosis: a hereditary disease with an inadequate urinary H⁺ excretion.
 

Author(s): Laura Escobar, Natalia Mejía, Helena Gil, Fernando Santos

Journal: Nefrologia. 2013 ;33(3):289-96.

 

Distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) or RTA type I is characterised by reduced H+ hydrogen ions and ammonium urinary excretion. In children affected by dRTA there is stunted growth, vomiting, constipation, loss of appetite, polydipsia and polyuria, nephrocalcinosis, weakness ...

Proximal renal tubular acidosis: a not so rare disorder of multiple etiologies.
 

Author(s): Syed K Haque, Gema Ariceta, Daniel Batlle

Journal: Nephrol. Dial. Transplant.. 2012 Dec;27(12):4273-87.

 

Proximal renal tubular acidosis (RTA) (Type II RTA) is characterized by a defect in the ability to reabsorb HCO(3) in the proximal tubule. This is usually manifested as bicarbonate wastage in the urine reflecting that the defect in proximal tubular transport is severe enough that ...

Genetic causes and mechanisms of distal renal tubular acidosis.
 

Author(s): Daniel Batlle, Syed K Haque

Journal: Nephrol. Dial. Transplant.. 2012 Oct;27(10):3691-704.

 

The primary or hereditary forms of distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) have received increased attention because of advances in the understanding of the molecular mechanism, whereby mutations in the main proteins involved in acid-base transport result in impaired acid excretion. ...
