Abstract

Here, we report the aquaporin 2 (AQP2) mutational analysis of a patient with nephrogenic diabetes insipidus heterozygote due to two novel missense mutations. Direct sequencing of DNA in the male patient revealed that he was compound heterozygote for two mutations in the AQP2 gene: a thymine-to-adenine transversion at position 450 (c.450T>A) in exon 2 and a guanine-to-thymine at nucleotide position 643 (c.643G>T) in exon 4. The double heterozygous 450T>A and 643G>T transversion causes the amino acid substitution D150E and G215C. Direct sequencing of exons 2 and 4 of the AQP2 gene from each of the parents revealed that the c.450T>A mutation was inherited from the father while the c.643G>T mutation was inherited from the mother. Analysis of AQP2 excretion demonstrated that no AQP2 was detectable in the urine of the proband, whereas normal AQP2 levels were measured in both parents. When expressed in renal cells, both proteins were retarded in the endoplasmic reticulum and no redistribution was observed after forskolin stimulation. Of note, homology modeling revealed that the two mutations involve two highly conserved residues providing important clues about the role of the wt residues in AQP2 stability and function.
