  • 功能:
    Channel-forming tight junction protein that mediates paracellular chloride transport in the kidney. Plays a critical role in the paracellular reabsorption of filtered chloride in the kidney collecting ducts. Claudins play a major role in tight junction-specific obliteration of the intercellular space, through calcium-independent cell-adhesion activity.

    2. these results suggest that Helicobacter pylori lipopolysaccharide induces TLR2 expression in the gastric adenocarcinoma cells, and that the longer the exposure to lipopolysaccharide, the greater the expression of TLR2 in the cell membrane; consequently the expression of claudin-4, -6, -7 and -9 also increases PMID: 29031421
    3. HIF-1alpha expression was upregulated in the vasculogenic mimicry-positive CRC cell line HCT-116 and thereby affected the expression of the EMT-related markers Claudin-4, E-cadherin (E-cd) and Vimentin(VIM). PMID: 27869227

The lack of claudin-4 expression in ovarian small cell carcinomas of hypercalcemic type suggests that these tumors may be better regarded as sarcomas rather than carcinomas. PMID: 28084340
    5. Data indiate a regulatory network in gastric cancer whereby claudin-4 expression is reduced by specific miRNAs, which are in turn bound by specific lncRNAs acting as competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs), resulting in increased claudin-4 expression. PMID: 28819095

    CLDN4 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region.
