The Role of ANO1 in Polycystic Kidney Disease

In Polycystic Kidney Diseases (PKD) continuous growth of renal cysts due to proliferation and fluid secretion causes renal failure. Although the underlying mechanisms remain incompletely understood, they appear to be related to the primary cilium. We aim to analyze the functional role of the calcium-activated chloride channel ANO1 for progression of PKD in a PKD mouse model and in PKD cells and to study its impact on ciliary calcium homeostasis and cell proliferation.
