Disease relevance of ATP6V1B1

  • Previously we have shown that mutations in two kidney-specific genes, ATP6V1B1 and ATP6V0A4, encoding the H(+)-ATPase B1 and a4 subunit isoforms, cause recessive distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) [1].
  • The previously reported association between ATP6V1B1 defects and severe hearing loss in childhood was maintained [2].
  • The osteopetrosis is the result of a homozygous deletion in TCIRG1, which encodes an osteoclast specific isoform of subunit a of the H(+)-ATPase, while the dRTA is associated with a homozygous mutation in ATP6V1B1, encoding the kidney specific B1 subunit of H(+)-ATPase [3].
  • We demonstrate here that mutations in ATP6B1, encoding the B-subunit of the apical proton pump mediating distal nephron acid secretion, cause distal renal tubular acidosis, a condition characterized by impaired renal acid secretion resulting in metabolic acidosis [4].

High impact information on ATP6V1B1


Biological context of ATP6V1B1


Anatomical context of ATP6V1B1

  • In cells lacking V(0) genes, Vma2p and Vma5p were still detected on Vid vesicles and vacuoles, suggesting that the distribution of V(1) proteins is independent of V(0) genes [10].
  • V-ATPase B1-subunit promoter drives expression of EGFP in intercalated cells of kidney, clear cells of epididymis and airway cells of lung in transgenic mice [11].

Other interactions of ATP6V1B1


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ATP6V1B1

  • These results demonstrate that Atp6v1b1 encodes the murine ortholog of human ATP6V1B1 and provides a tool for future development of animal models based on manipulation of the Atp6v1b1 genomic locus [8].
