Abstract

Recently, a urate transporter, hURAT1 (human uric acid transporter 1) encoded by SLC22A12, was isolated from the human kidney. hURAT1 is presumed to play the central role in reabsorption of urate from glomerular filtrate. In the present study, we analyzed SLC22A12 in seven unrelated Japanese patients with renal hypouricemia whose serum level of urate was less than 1.0 mg/dl, and their family members. We performed direct DNA sequencing of the exon and exon-intron boundaries of SLC22A12 using genomic DNA. Six of the seven patients (86%) possess mutations in SLC22A12. In five patients, a homozygous G to A transition at nucleotide 774 within exon 4 of SLC22A12, which forms a stop codon (TGA) at codon 258 (TGG), was identified (W258X). In one patient, the C to T transition within exon 3, which changes threonine at codon 217 to methionine (T217 M), and the W258X mutation were found (compound heterozygote). Thus, among 12 mutational alleles in six patients, 11 were the W258X mutation (92%). Family members with the heterozygous W258X mutation (carriers) show relatively low levels of serum urate. The present study demonstrates that homozygous W258X mutation is the predominant genetic cause of idiopathic renal hypouricemia in Japanese patients.
