Abstract

Polycystic kidney disease results from loss of function of either of two novel proteins, polycystin-1 or polycystin-2. Recent studies show that intracellular calcium signaling is important in kidney development, and define defects in this signaling pathway as the basis of cyst formation in polycystic kidney disease.
