The model animal of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the Eker rat, has a germline mutation in the tuberous sclerosis 2 (Tsc2) gene. Heterozygous mutants develop RCCs by second hit in the wild-type Tsc2 allele, whereas homozygous mutants are embryonic lethal. In the present study, a new cell differentiation model was developed to study the mechanism of Tsc2(More)
Genetic testing of PKD1 and PKD2 is expected to play an increasingly important role in determining allelic influences in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) in the near future. However, to date, genetic testing is not commonly employed because it is expensive, complicated because of genetic heterogeneity, and does not easily identify(More)
