Association of caveolin-1 gene polymorphism with kidney transplant fibrosis and allograft failure.
CONTEXT: Caveolin-1 (CAV1) is an inhibitor of tissue fibrosis. OBJECTIVE: To study the association of CAV1 gene variation with kidney transplant outcome, using kidney transplantation as a model of accelerated fibrosis. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: Candidate gene association and validation study. Genomic DNA from 785 white kidney transplant donors and their respective recipients (transplantations in Birmingham, England, between 1996 and 2006; median follow-up, 81 months) were analyzed for co...Expand abstract
