Abstract

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is characterized by dilation of collecting ducts and by biliary dysgenesis and is an important cause of renal- and liver-related morbidity and mortality. Genetic analysis of a rat with recessive polycystic kidney disease revealed an orthologous relationship between the rat locus and the ARPKD region in humans; a candidate gene was identified. A mutation was characterized in the rat and screening the 66 coding exons of the human ortholog (PKHD1) in 14 probands with ARPKD revealed 6 truncating and 12 missense mutations; 8 of the affected individuals were compound heterozygotes. The PKHD1 transcript, approximately 16 kb long, is expressed in adult and fetal kidney, liver and pancreas and is predicted to encode a large novel protein, fibrocystin, with multiple copies of a domain shared with plexins and transcription factors. Fibrocystin may be a receptor protein that acts in collecting-duct and biliary differentiation.
