Although diabetic nephropathy occurs only in a minority of diabetic patients
(approximately 30%), it is the major single cause of end-stage renal disease in
the United States. Hyperglycemia and hypertension are important factors
predisposing patients to nephropathy, however, accumulating evidence points to
critical genetic factors that predispose only a subset of diabetic patients to
nephropathy. Defining the genes responsible for nephropathy risk in human
populations has proven challenging. Comparative genomics using the robust
genetic reagents available in the laboratory mouse should provide a
complementary approach to defining genes that may predispose to diabetic
nephropathy in mice and human beings. In this article we review studies that
have started to identify genetic risk factors for diabetic nephropathy in mice
and the multiple approaches that may be used to elucidate the genetic
pathogenesis of this disorder.
