Congenital progressive hydronephrosis (cph) is a spontaneous recessive mutation that causes severe hydronephrosis and obstructive nephropathy in affected mice. The mutation has been mapped to the distal end of mouse chromosome 15, but the mutated gene has not been found. Here, we describe the identification of a single base pair change in aquaporin-2 (Aqp2) in cph mutants through genetic linkage mapping. The C-T change led to the substitution of a Ser (S256) by a Leu in the cytoplasmic tail of… CONTINUE READING
