Due to overlapping morphology, malignant chromophobe renal cell carcinomas (RCC) and benign renal oncocytomas (RO) may pose a diagnostic problem. In the present study, we have applied different algorithms to evaluate the data sets obtained by hybridisation of pooled and also individual samples of renal cell tumours (RCT) onto two different gene expression platforms. The two approaches revealed high similarities in the gene expression profiles of chromophobe RCCs and ROs but also some differences. After identifying the differentially expressed genes by statistic analyses, the candidate genes were further selected by a real time and normal RT-PCR and their products were analysed by immunohistochemistry. We have identified CD82 and S100A1 as valuable markers for chromophobe RCC as well as AQP6 for ROs. However, these genes are expressed at the protein level in other types of RCTs as well albeit at a low frequency and low intensity. As none of the selected genes marks exclusively one type of RCTs, for the differential diagnosis of chromophobe RCCs and ROs, a set of markers such as CD82, S100A1 and AQP6 as well as some others would be an option in routine histological laboratories.
|Water permeability of cochlear outer hair cells: characterization and relationship to electromotility.|

The distinguishing feature of the mammalian outer hair cells (OHCs) is to elongate and shorten at acoustic frequencies, when their intracellular potential is changed. This "electromotility" or "electromechanics" depends critically on positive intracellular pressure (turgor), maintained by the inflow of water through yet uncharacterized water pathways. We measured the water volume flow, J(v), across the plasma membrane of isolated guinea pig and rat OHCs after osmotic challenges and estimated the osmotic water permeability coefficient, P(f), to be approximately 10(-2) cm/sec. This value is within the range reported for osmotic flow mediated by the water channel proteins, aquaporins. J(v) was inhibited by HgCl(2), which is known to block aquaporin-mediated water transport. P(f) values that were estimated for OHCs from neonatal rats were of the order of approximately 2 x 10(-3) cm/sec, equivalent to that of membranes lacking water channel proteins. In an immunofluorescence assay we showed that an anti-peptide antibody specific for aquaporins labels the lateral plasma membrane of the OHC in the region in which electromotility is generated. Using patch-clamp recording, we found that water influx into the OHC is regulated by intracellular voltage. We also found that the most pronounced increases of the electromotility-associated charge movement and of the expression of OHC water channels occur between postnatal days 8 and 12, preceding the onset of hearing function in the rat. Our data indicate that electromotility and water transport in OHCs may influence each other structurally and functionally.
