They were then able to block the formation of the cysts by adding naringenin and saw that when levels of the PKD2 protein were reduced in the kidney cells, so was the block in cyst formation, confirming that the effect was connected.
This work will entail looking at the function of the PKD2 protein as a cell growth regulator.
El 15% restante se deben a mutaciones en el gen PKD2, que codifica para la proteina policistina 2, una proteina transmembrana que actua como canal de calcio voltaje dependiente y regula el calcio intracelular, especialmente en el reticulo endoplasmico.

The PKD2 gene (also referred to as TRPP2) is located on the long arm of chromosome 4 at position 4q22.
ADPKD is a common hereditary condition caused by the mutations of either PKD1 or PKD2, and the genetic basis of ADPKD has been clearly established (Schieren et al.
Two genes, PKD1 and PKD2, are responsible for the onset of this condition.
Two genes account for the vast majority of ADPKD cases: polycystic kidney disease (PKD)1 on chromosome 16 (85% of cases) and PKD2 on chromosome 4 (5%-10% of cases).
The polycystic liver and kidney diseases have heterogeneous etiologies and are caused by mutations in two genes, PKD1 and PKD2 (173) Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD) can present in neonates with massive renal cysts and recent study by Lee et al, 2008, provides data to support a role for miRNA.
