Renal podocytes and their slit diaphragms ensure the integrity of the renal basement membrane that forms the barrier to urinary protein loss. A putative disruption of the slit diaphragm and its main protein components, nephrin and podocin, may be implicated in the pathogenesis of lupus nephritis (LN). We studied the glomerular protein expression of nephrin(More)
Renal podocytes and their slit diaphragms ensure the integrity of renal basement membrane and prevent urinary protein loss. We have previously reported that decreases of the podocyte slit diaphragm proteins nephrin and podocin represent early events in the podocytopathy of lupus nephritis (LN). We asked whether immunosuppressive agents such as(More)
