The expression level of the CLDN14 gene in patients with urolithiasis - a preliminary report

Diana Słota, Tadeusz Paweł Wasilewski, Mariusz Goniewicz, Klaudia Długoborska


Aim: An attempt to assess the expression of the CLDN14 gene at the mRNA level in patients diagnosed with urolithiasis in relation to healthy persons constituting a comparative group.
Material and methods: The material for examinations was peripheral blood from 23 patients, including 12 women and 11 men with diagnosed kidney stones disease and 6 donors (control group), including 2 women and 4 men who did not have kidney stones.
Results and conclusions: The studies showed differences in the level of CLDN14 gene expression in both the examined and the comparative group.

Key words: CLDN14, gene expression, urolithiasis


CLDN14, g;ne expression; urolithiasis
