We previously showed that the presence of a CKD-associated locus in SHROOM3 in a donor kidney results in increased expression of SHROOM3 (an F-actin–binding protein important for epithelial morphogenesis, via rho-kinase [ROCK] binding); this facilitates TGF-b signaling and allograft fibrosis. However, other evidence suggests Shroom3 may have a protective role in glomerular development.
