Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common genetic disorder leading to end-stage renal failure in humans. In the PKD/Mhm(cy/+) rat model of ADPKD, the point mutation R823W in the sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain of the protein ANKS6 is responsible for disease. SAM domains are known protein-protein interaction domains, capable of(More)
The genetic analysis of rodent disease models provides a powerful tool to investigate how modifier loci cause variation in the phenotypic expression of a disease. In order to test the existence of modifier loci influencing polycystic kidney disease (PKD) phenotypes, we derived a backcross between PKD susceptible Han:SPRD(cy/+) and control Brown Norway (BN)(More)
