Associated with Nephrotic syndrome, type 9 615573 in OMIM. Previous symbol: ADCK4.
PMID: 24270420 - Ashraf et al 2013 - using a combination of homozygosity mapping and whole human exome resequencing, identified variants in the aarF domain containing kinase 4 (ADCK4) gene in 15 individuals with SRNS from 8 unrelated families. Several different variants. Functional data supports the role of this gene's involvement in nephrotic syndrome-associated phenotypes. In human podocytes, ADCK4 interacted with members of the CoQ10 biosynthesis pathway, including COQ6, which has been linked with SRNS and COQ7.
