Higher levels of sodium intake are reported to be associated with higher blood pressure. Whether this relationship varies according to levels of sodium or potassium intake and in different populations is unknown. We studied 102,216 adults from 18 countries. Estimates...

Mutations in SLC4A11, a member of the SLC4 superfamily of bicarbonate transporters, give rise to corneal endothelial cell dystrophies. SLC4A11 is a putative Na⁺ borate and Na⁺:OH⁻ transporter. Therefore we ask whether SLC4A11 in corneal endothelium transports borate (B[OH]₄⁻), bicarbonate...
