In renal principal cells, vasopressin regulates the shuttling of the aquaporin (AQP)2 water channel between intracellular vesicles and the apical plasma membrane. Vasopressin-induced phosphorylation of AQP2 at serine 256 (S256) by protein kinase A (PKA) is essential for its localization in the membrane. However, phosphorylated AQP2 (p-AQP2) has also been(More)
Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a potentially fatal pharmacogenetic myopathy triggered by exposure to volatile anesthetics and/or depolarizing muscle relaxants. Susceptibility to MH is primarily associated with dominant mutations in the ryanodine receptor type 1 gene (RYR1). Recent genetic studies have shown that RYR1 variants are the most common cause of(More)
Objective Nephronophthisis is an autosomal recessive renal ciliopa-thy that constitutes the leading monogenic cause of end-stage renal disease in children. The KOUNCIL consortium is a collaboration between the UMC Utrecht, the Radboud UMC Nijmegen and UC London aimed at elucidating the genetic etiology and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying(More)
Single gene disorders are estimated to account for ~30% of children and ~10% of adult patients attending renal outpatient services. For mutation detection by exome sequencing, deep phenotyping, reverse phenotyping and family history information are important. A multidisciplinary nephrogenetic outpatient clinic for children and adult patients with (genetic)(More)
In recent years whole-exome sequencing has been developed , a technique by which all exons of the genome (all the protein-coding DNA) can be sequenced at once. Here we show that whole-exome sequencing, using either 35 or 50 Mb Agilent kits for exome capture, was insufficient to detect pathogenic DYNC2H1 variants in patients with Jeune asphyxiating thoracic(More)
