Disease relevance of NKD1


High impact information on NKD1

  • NKD1 was highly expressed in fetal kidney, while NKD2 was moderately expressed in fetal kidney, lung, and adult lung [1].
  • The NH2 domain of NKD1 and NKD2 contained the EF-hand motif [1].
  • NKD1 and NKD2 were up-regulated together in 1 case of primary gastric cancer out of 10 cases, and were down-regulated together in 2 cases [1].
  • Up-regulation of NKD1 or NKD2 might be due to a negative feed-back mechanism [1].
  • Exon-intron structures of NKD1 and NKD2 genes, consisting of 10 exons, were well conserved [1].

Associations of NKD1 with chemical compounds

  • NKD1 and NKD2, showing 43.8% total amino-acid identity, were more homologous in the NH1, NH2, NH3, and NH4 domains [1].
