About miR-21 and Alport Syndrome

According to the National Institutes of Health, Alport Syndrome occurs in approximately 1 in 50,000 newborns.  Alport syndrome is a genetic condition characterized by kidney disease, hearing loss, and eye abnormalities.  The kidneys become less able to function as this condition progresses, resulting in end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Mutations in the COL4A3, COL4A4, and COL4A5 genes cause Alport Syndrome. These genes provide instructions for making one component of a protein called type IV collagen. This protein plays an important role in the kidneys, specifically in structures called glomeruli. Glomeruli are clusters of specialized blood vessels that remove water and waste products from blood and create urine. Mutations in these genes result in abnormalities of the type IV collagen in glomeruli, which prevents the kidneys from properly filtering the blood and allows blood and protein to pass into the urine.
