Two gene fragments that direct podocyte-specific expression in transgenic mice.

Abstract

Transgenic manipulation of the glomerular visceral epithelial cell offers a powerful approach for studying the biology of this morphologically complex cell type. It has been previously demonstrated that an 8.3-kb and a 5.4-kb fragment of the murine Nphs1 (nephrin) promoter-enhancer drives lacZ expression in podocytes, brain, and pancreas of transgenic mice… (More)
