The MYH9 gene encodes a protein that is expressed in the kidney glomerular podocytes. MYH9 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been linked to the risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease. Our aim was to determine whether MYH9 SNPs were associated with renal disease in Spanish Caucasians. The RENASTUR cohort consisted of 592… CONTINUE READING
