Summaries for PKHD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PKHD1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is predicted to have a single transmembrane (TM)-spanning domain and multiple copies of an immunoglobulin-like plexin-transcription-factor domain. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. Other alternatively spliced transcripts have been described, but the full length sequences have not been determined. Several of these transcripts are predicted to encode truncated products which lack the TM and may be secreted. Mutations in this gene cause autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, also known as polycystic kidney and hepatic disease-1. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Disorders for PKHD1 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for PKHD1 Gene (606702)


  • Polycystic kidney disease, autosomal recessive (ARPKD) [MIM:263200]: A severe form of polycystic kidney disease affecting the kidneys and the hepatic biliary tract. The clinical spectrum is widely variable, with most cases presenting during infancy. The fetal phenotypic features classically include enlarged and echogenic kidneys, as well as oligohydramnios secondary to a poor urine output. Up to 50% of the affected neonates die shortly after birth, as a result of severe pulmonary hypoplasia and secondary respiratory insufficiency. In the subset that survives the perinatal period, morbidity and mortality are mainly related to severe systemic hypertension, renal insufficiency, and portal hypertension due to portal-tract fibrosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11898128, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11919560, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12506140, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12846734, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12874454, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15108281, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16677362, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19914852}.
