    The heteromeric PC-1/PC-2 polycystin complex is activated by the PC-1 N-terminus

    Kotdaji Ha et al.
    Soluble fragments cleaved from the N-terminus of PC-1 activate the PC-1/PC-2 heteromeric polycystin channel, describing for the first time that the N-terminus itself is an endogenous ligand.

    Polycystin-2 is an essential ion channel subunit in the primary cilium of the renal collecting duct epithelium

    Xiaowen Liu et al.
    The primary cilia polycystin proteins, polycystin-1 and polycystin-2, affect cilia length in the kidney collecting duct epithelia, but only polycystin-2 is required for the functional ion channel in this organelle.

    Arterial smooth muscle cell PKD2 (TRPP1) channels regulate systemic blood pressure

    Simon Bulley et al.
    Arterial myocyte PKD2 channels are activated by vasoconstrictor stimuli, which increases blood pressure, are upregulated during hypertension and cell-specific knockout in vivo reduces both physiological blood pressure and hypertension.

    Ciliary Rab28 and the BBSome negatively regulate extracellular vesicle shedding

    Jyothi S Akella et al.
    The RAB-28 GTPase regulates ciliary extracellular vesicle shedding, which may be important for neuron-glia communication.

    Spatiotemporal dynamics and heterogeneity of renal lymphatics in mammalian development and cystic kidney disease

    Daniyal J Jafree et al.
    Three-dimensional imaging was used to identify structural and quantitative features of developing lymphatics in the kidneys of mice, humans and in a genetic mouse model of polycystic kidney disease.

    Intravascular flow stimulates PKD2 (polycystin-2) channels in endothelial cells to reduce blood pressure

    Charles E MacKay et al.
    PKD2 (polycystin-2) channels are a major component of a flow-sensing signaling mechanism in endothelial cells that stimulates vasodilation and reduces blood pressure.

    Cryo-EM structure of the polycystin 2-l1 ion channel

    Raymond E Hulse et al.
    The selectivity characteristics of PC-2L1, which make it a principal source of calcium in primary cilia function, is presented and advances understanding of the similarity and differences of TRPP ion channels.

    Atypical calcium regulation of the PKD2-L1 polycystin ion channel

    Paul G DeCaen et al.
    Outward calcium ion currents desensitize the human PKD2-L1 ion channel via a mechanism that is independent of cytosolic motifs.

    Modelling TFE renal cell carcinoma in mice reveals a critical role of WNT signaling

    Alessia Calcagnì et al.
    Kidney-specific TFEB overexpression in transgenic mice closely recapitulates features observed in both TFEB- and TFE3-mediated human kidney tumors.
