Abstract

Mutations in either PKD1 or PKD2 gene are associated with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, the most common inherited kidney disorder. Polycystin-2 (PC2), the PKD2 gene product, and the related protein polycystin-L, function as Ca2+-permeable, nonselective cation channels in different expression systems. This work describes a nonspecific cation current (ICC) that is present in native ...
