Target Background

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.

  1. Claudin-4 expression can be absent or very focal in a subset of high-grade endometrial carcinomas PMID: 29671892
  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

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

Involvement in disease
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.
Subcellular Location
Cell junction, tight junction. Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.

Claudin family
