Detecting PKD1 variants in Polycystic Kidney Disease patients by single-molecule long-read sequencing
A genetic diagnosis of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is challenging. However, long-read single-molecule sequencing has been shown to be a reliable alternative strategy that could overcome PKD1 complexities. Using long-read sequencing to characterize a cohort of 19 patients with ADPKD, we developed an approach that provided high sensitivity in identifying PKD1 pathogenic variants, with a diagnostic yield of 94.7%. Reliable screening of ADPKD patients in a single test without interference of PKD1 homologous sequences is now possible.
