The TonE-binding protein (TonEBP) is a transcriptional activator in the Rel family that includes NFkB and NFAT. TonEBP is critical for the development and function of the renal medulla, which is a major regulator of water homeostasis. TonEBP is also implicated in diabetic nephropathy and inflammation. Established methods for biochemical and histochemical detection and functional
