Division of Nephrology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota 55905, USA
J Am Soc Nephrol 14:2280-7. 2003..These observations are consistent with an important role of the polycystins in the development, maintenance, and function of the myoelastic arterial organization and with the vascular phenotype associated with ADPKD...
- Ciliary and centrosomal defects associated with mutation and depletion of the Meckel syndrome genes MKS1 and MKS3Rachaneekorn Tammachote
Department of Biochemistry Molecular Biology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA
Hum Mol Genet 18:3311-23. 2009..MKS1 and MKS3 functions are required for ciliary structure and function, including a role in regulating length and appropriate number through modulating centrosome duplication...
- Cellular and subcellular localization of the ARPKD protein; fibrocystin is expressed on primary ciliaChristopher J Ward
Division of Nephrology, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA
Hum Mol Genet 12:2703-10. 2003..The localization of fibrocystin to cilia further strengthens that correlation and indicates that the primary defect in ARPKD may be linked to ciliary dysfunction...

Center for Human and Clinical Genetics, Leiden University Medical Center, 2333 AL Leiden, The Netherlands
Hum Mol Genet 13:3069-77. 2004..We propose that in patients reduced PKD1 expression of the normal allele below a critical level, due to genetic, environmental or stochastic factors, may lead to cyst formation in the kidneys and other clinical features of ADPKD...
