Summaries for Senior-Loken Syndrome-1

About this section
OMIM:46 Senior-Loken syndrome is an autosomal recessive disease with the main features of nephronophthisis (NPHP; see 256100)... (266900) more...

MalaCards based summary: Senior-Loken Syndrome-1, also known as senior-loken syndrome 1, is related to leber congenital amaurosis and nephronophthisis 1, juvenile, and has symptoms including multicystic kidney dysplasia, polycystic kidney dysplasia and visual impairment. An important gene associated with Senior-Loken Syndrome-1 is NPHP1 (nephronophthisis 1 (juvenile)), and among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition. Affiliated tissues include kidney, eye and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are cardiovascular system and renal/urinary system.

Disease Ontology:8 An autosomal recessive genetic disease characterized by progressive wasting of the filtering unit of the kidney (nephronophthisis), with or without medullary cystic renal disease, and progressive eye disease.
