Target

  • Function
    Seems to play a role in the development or function of the kidney glomerular filtration barrier. Regulates glomerular vascular permeability. May anchor the podocyte slit diaphragm to the actin cytoskeleton. Plays a role in skeletal muscle formation through regulation of myoblast fusion.
  • Tissue specificity
    Specifically expressed in podocytes of kidney glomeruli.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in NPHS1 are the cause of nephrotic syndrome type 1 (NPHS1) [MIM:256300]; also known as Finnish congenital nephrosis (CNF). A renal disease characterized clinically by proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia, and edema. Kidney biopsies show non-specific histologic changes such as focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and diffuse mesangial proliferation. Some affected individuals have an inherited steroid-resistant form and progress to end-stage renal failure.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily.
    Contains 1 fibronectin type-III domain.
    Contains 8 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Developmental stage
    In 23-week-old embryo found in epithelial podocytes of the periphery of mature and developing glomeruli.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated on tyrosine residues.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Predominantly located at podocyte slit diaphragm between podocyte foot processes. Also associated with podocyte apical plasma membrane.
