(2007)
      Mutations in the COL4A3/COL4A4 genes of type IV collagen have been found in ∼40% of cases of thin basement membrane nephropathy, which is characterized by microscopic hematuria and is classically thought to cause proteinuria ...

      Nagara, Majdi; Voskarides, Konstantinos; Nouira, S.; Ben Halim, N.; Kefi Ben Atig, Rym; Aloulou, Hajer; Romdhane, L.; Ben Abdallah, R.; Ben Rhouma, F.; Aissa, K.; Boughamoura, L.; Kammoun, T.; Azzouz, H.; Abroug, S.; Ben Turkia, H.; Ayadi, A.; Mrad, R.; Chabchoub, I.; Hachicha, M.; Chemli, J.; Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D.; Abdelhak, S. (2014)
      BACKGROUND: Distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) is a rare genetic disease caused by mutations in different genes involved in the secretion of H+ ions in the intercalated cells of the collecting duct. Both autosomal dominant ...
