This cell transport abnormality is another significant feature of PKD, which is manifested by the sub-unit combination, distribution and activity expression of Na+-K+-ATPase closely related to cell transport. Abnormal cell signaling and changes in ion transport channels.

Abnormal proliferation of extracellular matrix is the third prominent feature of PKD.
