AVP

NLRP3

A gene located on chromosome 1q44 that encodes a pyrin-like protein that interacts with the apoptosis-associated speck-like protein PYCARD/ASC. NLRP3 has a caspase recruitment domain, and belongs to the NALP3 inflammasome complex; it plays a role in regulating inflammation and apoptosis.
 
Molecular pathology
NLRP3 mutations are associated with chronic infantile neurological cutaneous and articular (CINCA) syndrome, familial cold autoinflammatory syndrome (FCAS), Muckle-Wells syndrome and neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID).

However, in athletes with high sweat sodium concentrations (>100 mmol/L) (63) or high urinary sodium losses from inappropriate AVP secretion and water retention (>400 mOsm/L) (22,23,46) sodium losses may play a secondary role in the pathogenesis of EAH by either of two potential mechanisms: 1) hypovolemia produced by losses of sodium and water from sweating can act as a stimulus to AVP secretion, producing a secondary retention of water, as is seen medically in some cases of diuretic-induced hyponatremia (64); 2) sodium losses themselves can worsen the degree of hyponatremia, although in most cases not nearly as much as water retention (20) when summed up over time.
