Our data show a novel mutation pattern in UMOD , suggesting that exon 5 mutations can be more frequent in some populations. Our results support that every exon of the UMOD gene must be included in molecular testing and provide additional evidence for the existence of a fourth calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like domain in the structure of Tamm-Horsfall protein. A second family reported to date is described, confirming that the GCKD phenotype may be caused by a UMOD mutation.
