In PLOS Genetics, French researchers describe a role for mutations in the NEK8 gene in a ciliopathy disorder with overlapping features that include a kidney disease called severe syndromic renal cystic dysplasia and other conditions. In search of new ciliopathy-related mutations, the team did exon-enriched sequencing on more than 1,200 ciliary genes in 342 ciliopathy patients with kidney symptoms and 200 samples from fetuses or neonatal deaths with related features.
