Number of Panel Genes: 

Familial juvenile hyperuricemic nephropathy is an autosomal dominant disorder. Mutations in three genes, REN, SEC61A1, and UMOD, have been shown to cause this disorder. It is characterized by hyperuricemia as a result of reduced kidney excretion of uric acid and progressive renal failure. Additional features may include gout, cystic kidneys, anemia, and high blood pressure.
