PKD1 and PKD2 genes that are mutated in Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) are likely to play a role in vessel biology and their dysfunction lead to aneurysm formation.
At least there are descriptions of 3 genetic variants of the disease;4 85% of cases (PKD1) are due to an abnormality at chromosome 16q13.3, while 15% (PKD2) are due to an abnormality at chromosome 4q21-23.
