Highlights of upcoming conference on aldosterone & the ENaC/Degenerin family of ion channels
Date:9/6/2011

Bethesda, Md. (Sept. 6, 2011) The American Physiological Society is sponsoring the 7th International Symposium on Aldosterone and the ENaC/Degenerin Family of Ion Channels, being held September 18-22 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, Calif. This scientific conference explores the connection between fluid balance in the body and hypertension, a growing global health concern.

The five-day program kicks off Sunday, September 18 with the keynote lecture by Richard Lifton, Yale University School of Medicine, entitled "Aldosterone and Hereditary Hypertension." Dr. Lifton is the Sterling Professor of Genetics and Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) and Chair, Department of Genetics, Yale University. He is also known for his groundbreaking work in identifying genes associated with blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and bone density.

Additional conference highlights include:

Monday, September 19

Symposia I: Structure and Function of ENaC and Related Transporters

Speakers will cover the structure, function, regulation, and molecular organization of ENaC and other transporters. Experts will discuss how aldosterone affects ENaC and the physiological importance of ENaC regulation.

Symposia II: Structure and Function of Mineralocorticoid and Glucocorticoid Receptors

Invited researchers will explain the role these receptors play in fluid balance, how these receptors function in different body tissues, and how these receptors are regulated.

Tuesday, September 20

Symposia III: Regulation of ENaC Biogenesis, Trafficking and Gating

Speakers will delve into ENaC regulation, and its interaction with and regulation by other elements.

Symposia IV: Aldosterone: Synthesis Crosstalk and Non-epithelial Actions

Researchers will make presentations on aldosterone, including the role of nitric oxide and caveolin in the vascular actions of al
