Brief description Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) affect more than 1/500 children. Urogenital development is primarily controlled by a small number of genes that regulate the timing and position of kidney formation. In this application we describe a novel gene involved in this process, establish where it acts, how it regulates gene expression and whether mutations in it cause CAKUT.
