Association Analysis of the Cubilin (CUBN) and Megalin (LRP2) Genes with ESRD in African Americans.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Genetic variation in the cubilin (CUBN) gene is associated with albuminuria and CKD. Common and rare coding variants in CUBN and the gene encoding its transport partner megalin (LRP2) were assessed for association with ESRD in blacks. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS Sixty-six CUBN and LRP2 single-nucleotide… (More)
