Lbrecht et al., 2001; Schmutz et al., 2010). Lamia et al. have shown that other circadian clock proteins, Cry1 and Cry2, can interact using the GR, bind towards the glucocorticoid response element in the phosphoenolpyruvatecarboxykinase 1 promoter, and subsequently repress GR action (Lamia et al., 2011). These earlier studies supplied precedent for coordinate action of MR and Per1 on transcriptional regulation of ENaC. The circadian clock plays a crucial part inside the manage of BP and renal function (Richards and Gumz, 2013). CLOCK KO mice have lower BP, dysregulated sodium excretion (Zuber et al., 2009) as well as the loss of circadian expression of plasma aldosterone levels (Nikolaeva et al., 2012). BMAL1 KO mice exhibit reduced BP through the active phase (Curtis et al., 2007). Cry1/Cry2 KO mice exhibit salt sensitive hypertension on account of an up-regulation within the aldosterone synthesis enzyme 3–dehydrogenase-isomerase CDK4 web leading to improved aldosterone synthesis and higher aldosterone levels (Doi et al., 2010). Each the CLOCK KO and Cry1/Cry2 KO phenotypes and their dysregulated aldosterone levels provide further proof of a connection among the circadian clock and aldosterone signaling. Together with our getting that Per1 is an early aldosterone target (Gumz et al., 2003), the present study demonstrates that MR and Per1 interact with E-boxes in the ENaC promoter. These information supply added evidence for the function of the circadian clock in aldosterone signaling. The coordinated action of MR and Per1 may possibly recommend a previously unrecognized mechanism by which the circadian clock modulates physiological rhythms and aldosterone signaling.ACKNOWLEDGMENTSThe authors would prefer to thank Dr. Brian Cain and Dr. Mollie Jacobs for critical critique of this manuscript.
