2)  Jak2 - the intracellular kinase activated by the binding of Epo to the Epo receptor.

3) Live vaccines are contraindicated in kidney transplant recipients – these include MMR, Varicella, Yellow fever and BCG.

4)  Liddle's , the opposite of Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type I - Gitelman's, the opposite of Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type II (also known as Gordon's syndrome).
