Associated with Polycystic liver disease 3 with or without kidney cysts, 617874 (AD) in OMIM.

PMID: 28375157 - Besse et al 2017 - report 5 probands with 3 different heterozygous variants in ALG8 and liver cysts. 4 of the probands also had between 1 and 9 kidney cysts (1, at least 3, 3-4 and 9). 3 of the probands share the same c.1090C>T, p.R364X variant, but the shared haplotype block among any 2 of these individuals is approximately 87 kb which is too small to be indicative of a cryptic relationship between any of the probands and instead suggests that the mutation in each arose independently. The proband with 3-4 kidney cysts has a daughter who shares the ALG8 variants and who has no liver cysts but 8 kidney cysts.

PMID: 30135240 - Lanktree et al 2018 - looked for rare variants in gnomAD and BRAVO in genes involved in ADPKD (PKD1, PKD2), ADPLD (PRKCSH, SEC63, GANAB, ALG8, SEC61B, LRP5). ADPLD protein truncating variants in ALG8 are found in 1 in 1,429 people in these two databases. But this paper does not give numbers of people with ADPLD or if those people also have kidney cysts.
