involves: C57BL/6J * CD-1
phenotype observed in females WTSI Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
phenotype observed in males EuPh Europhenome
N normal phenotype
• uremic mortality is seen in less than 10% of homozygotes at 14-20 days of age

renal/urinary system
• seen at 4 days of age
• at 4 days of age proximal tubule cysts are seen with focal collecting duct dilations in the cortex and outer medulla and by 8-20 days of age collecting duct cysts expand to replace almost all the normal kidney tissue
• cells lining the proximal tubule cysts and later the collecting duct cysts appear immature

• azotemia seen at 12 days of age

endocrine/exocrine glands
• all common bile ducts have cysts
• all pancreatic ducts have cysts

liver/biliary system
• all common bile ducts have cysts
• intrahepatic bile duct cysts consisting of focal dilations in the triad region through to the terminal intrahepatic branches without signs of significant periductal proliferation

immune system

hematopoietic system
