The visceral glomerular epithelial cell, also known as the podocyte, plays an important role in the maintenance of renal glomerular function. This cell type is highly specialized and its foot processes together with the interposed slit diaphragm (SD) form the final barrier to urinary protein loss. Effacement of foot processes is associated with the development of proteinuria and—if not reversed in a certain time—with permanent deterioration of the glomerular filter. To maintain an intact… CONTINUE READING
