Abstract

The identification, characterization, and mutational analysis of three different genes, namely the prepro-arginine-vasopressin-neurophysin II gene (), the arginine-vasopressin receptor 2 gene (), and the vasopressin-sensitive water channel gene (aquaporin-2, ), provide the basis for our understanding of three different hereditary forms of diabetes insipidus: autosomal dominant neurogenic diabetes insipidus, X-linked nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, and autosomal recessive nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, respectively. These advances provide diagnostic tools for physicians caring for these patients.
