This gene encodes an essential beta subunit for CLC chloride channels. These heteromeric channels localize to basolateral membranes of renal tubules and of potassium-secreting epithelia of the inner ear. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Bartter syndrome with sensorineural deafness. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for BSND Gene
BSND (Barttin CLCNK Type Accessory Subunit Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BSND include Bartter Syndrome, Type 4A, Neonatal, With Sensorineural Deafness and Infantile Bartter Syndrome With Sensorineural Deafness. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Ion channel transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chloride channel activity and chloride channel regulator activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for BSND Gene
Functions as a beta-subunit for CLCNKA and CLCNKB chloride channels. In the kidney CLCNK/BSND heteromers mediate chloride reabsorption by facilitating its basolateral efflux. In the stria, CLCNK/BSND channels drive potassium secretion by recycling chloride for the basolateral SLC12A2 cotransporter.
