Scientific Background :WNK1 is a member of the WNK subfamily of serine/threonine protein kinases that is a key regulator of blood pressure by controlling the transport of sodium and chloride ions. Mutations in WNK1 have been associated with pseudohypoaldosteronism type II and hereditary sensory neuropathy type II. WNK1 is a regulator of blood pressure and deficiency of this protein in mice lowers the blood pressure (1). WNK1 can regulate the Ca(2+) sensing and the subsequent Ca(2+)-dependent interactions mediated by synaptotagmin C2 domains and WNK1 exhibits additive CFTR inhibition (2).
