Apico-basal polarity in polycystic kidney disease epithelia.
London, United Kingdom. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2011
Abnormalities in structural AJ, FA and polarity complexes in ADPKD epithelia include loss of E-cadherin, and focal adhesion kinase (FAK), MALS-3, Crb and Dlg complexes as well as disruptions in Rab/sec and syntaxin trafficking and membrane docking pathways.
Implication of genetic variants near NEGR1, SEC16B, TMEM18, ETV5/DGKG, GNPDA2, LIN7C/BDNF, MTCH2, BCDIN3D/FAIM2, SH2B1, FTO, MC4R, and KCTD15 with obesity and type 2 diabetes in 7705 Chinese.
