Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (PKD1) is linked to the alpha-globin locus near the telomere of chromosome 16p. We established the existence of a conserved linkage group in mouse by mapping conserved sequences and cDNAs from the region surrounding the PKD1 gene in the mouse genome. Results obtained with the BXD recombinant strain system and(More)
The major locus for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (PKD1) is located in a gene-rich region on chromosome 16p13.3. Recently the identification of the gene responsible for PKD1 has been described. While searching for candidate genes in this region, we isolated a new member of the cyclin family. We have characterized the transcript by sequencing,(More)
Haplotype analysis was performed in 35 autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) families typed with 13 markers close to the PKD1 locus. The identification of recombinants close to the PKD1 gene on chromosome 16p indicates that PKD1 lies between CMM65 distally and 26-6 proximally. In addition, three unlinked (PKD2) families and two families with(More)
The gene for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (PKD1) is located on chromosome 16p, between the flanking markers D16S84 and D16S125 (26.6prox). This region is 750 kb long and has been cloned. We have looked at the association of 10 polymorphic markers from the region, with the disease and with each other. This was done in a set of Scottish(More)
