Claudin-16, -19, -7, and −8 expressions in the kidney cortex of rats fed 0.3% or 8% NaCl for 8 weeks. Target mRNA or protein levels were normalized against GAPDH and expressed as relative amounts. Salt loading for 8 weeks did not significantly alter claudin-16 (5A), -19 (5B), -7 (5C), or −8 (5D) mRNA. n=13-15 for 5A and 5B, and n=9-10 for 5C and 5D.
