  2. Resource Description
    The <i>kd/kd</i> mouse is homozygous for the V117M mutation in PDSS2, the “kidney disease” mutation, which occurred spontaneously in a CBA/CaH colony. These mice spontaneously develop severe and progressive nephritis leading to renal failure, characterized by cellular infiltration, tubular destruction and glomerular sclerosis. The <i>kd</i> allele was transferred to the C57BL/6J (B6) background by mating a recombinant <i>kd</i> haplotype with B6 with selection for closely linked microsatellite markers that were studied in a mapping experiment.
