Molecular traffic jam may underlie rare kidney disease, other protein misfolding disorders

Researchers find that several genetic disorders, including MUC1 kidney disease, may share a novel molecular mechanism -- and identify a promising therapeutic lead. Misfolded MUC1-fs protein (green) builds up in the kidneys of a mouse model of MUC1 kidney disease.
