Following the first report on the association between MYH9 gene variants and glomerular disorders [1], many studies have evaluated MYH9 loci for association with a range of kidney diseases [2]. In 2010, functional mutations in the adjacent APOL1 gene were identified as the primary variants responsible for associations with kidney disease that had previously been attributed to the MHY9 gene [3]. Nevertheless, several loci within MHY9 continue to be independently reported as risk factors for chronic kidney disease (CKD) [2, 4].
