Rare renal disorders identify core aspects of renal homeostasis - an integral approach to discover fundamental molecular principles of the kidney

The project represents an innovative approach to utilize genomic profiling in Rare Kidney Disease (RKD) in order to identify new causative genes and genotypes, gain knowledge about fundamental aspects of kidney homeostasis, and improve our understanding of the genomic basis of renal disease. We aim to provide missing links that change our perception of (molecular) renal physiology in health and disease.


Nearly all children/adolescents and at least 10% of adults requiring dialysis and renal transplantation suffer from rare kidney diseases (RKD). The fact that many RKD entities are genetically heterogenous together with the phenotypic overlap complicates descriptive assessment by clinical, imaging, and histopathology studies. These problems can be overcome by genomic profiling approaches and advanced bioinformatic analyses. Now, timely detection of causative variants even in sporadic cases is technically feasible. Genetic research therefore has not merely produced important insights into the genetic basis of Mendelian disease, but has also led to profound insights into the physiology of the kidney.

Complete assembly of the VNTR in ADTKD-MUC1

The Mucin-1 (MUC1) gene has been identified as a causal gene of autosomal dominant tubulo-interstitial kidney disease (ADTKD). Most causative mutations are buried within a GC-rich 60 basepair variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR), which escapes identification by conventional or parallel sequencing due to the complexity of the VNTR.

We established long read single molecule sequencing targeted to the MUC1-VNTR as an alternative strategy to the snapshot assay. Our approach allows complete VNTR assembly, thereby enabling the detection of all variants residing within the VNTR as well as determination of VNTR length (Figure 1). We confirmed the diagnosis in all previously tested cases, reconstruct both VNTR alleles and determine the exact position of the causative variant in eight of nine families.

Functional studies on MAGED2

We recently discovered mutations in the X-chromosomal MAGED2 gene as a novel cause for a transient form of antenatal Bartter-syndrome with severe polyhydramnios leading to prematurity and an increased risk for stillbirth. Besides several mutations affecting correct mRNA splicing, we identified a missense mutation (R446C) resulting in the expression of a full-length-protein. Subcellular fractionation as well as immunostaining experiments revealed altered protein MAGED2 localization within HEK293T and Cos-7 cells. We analysed interaction partners of MAGED2 via interactome and co-immunoprecipitation experiments and identified GNAS that binds wild-type but not R446C-MAGED2 protein. GNAS encodes the alpha-subunit of the stimulatory G protein (Gsα), which is a signaling protein able to increase NKCC2 and NCC expression and maturation via a cAMP-dependent pathway. As GNAS knock-out in mice had already been shown to result in impaired membrane expression of NKCC2, this could represent a pathomechanism of MAGED2 loss.

Analysis of structural variations within the complement factor H gene cluster on chr 1q32

Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a rare but severe disease that belongs to a group of thrombotic microangiopathies (TMA) and arises from an initial endothelial cell injury. The atypical form (aHUS) is a consequence of the deregulation of the alternative pathway of the complement system and many mutations in the complement genes including structural variations have been detected already. Using the Molecular Combing Technology from Genomic Vision we designed probes to detect structural variations within the regulators of complement activation (RCA) cluster. We were able to receive a full haplotype view, that can close the gap of structural aberration detection in this region characterized by high sequence homology.

Biomarker discovery in kidney diseases

So far, no reliable biomarkers for screening, diagnostic, monitoring and therapy efficacy purposes have been successfully established in RKD. The investigation of cell free-DNA (cfDNA) in blood and urine is a promising approach for biomarker discovery, as cfDNA is obtainable from minimally or non-invasive procedures. Analyzing epi-genomic marks in cfDNA is a challenging task, for low abundance, little fragment size, and a short half-life. Nevertheless, precise measures of methylation profiles in promoter regions of genes exclusively transcribed in renal tissue and cell-type specific nucleosome footprints could qualify as biomarker.


A precision diagnosis is the first step toward development of precision medicine approaches for individuals suffering from rare diseases. Due to the advances in sequencing technology and bio-informatics, genomic profiling is today a fast and economic approach to start investigations on hereditary disease. With help of the CMMC funding our group provides integral support for RKD way beyond standard diagnostics. We connect with all clinicians and researchers interested in the kidney disease to improve patient care even if the disease is beyond curative treatment- which can change due to breakthroughs in biotechnology any day, once a definite genetic diagnosis has been made.
