The members of the ADPKD Gene Variant Consortium have been critical in this collaborative effort of verifying the accuracy of the peer-reviewed PKD1 gene variants included in this retrospective audit. This work was supported by funding from the PKD Foundation. We are grateful to J. Crowhurst and H. Scott for their careful scrutiny of the manuscript. The encouragement of R. Cotton in the preparation of this report is appreciated.
