NEPH1 is a member of the nephrin-like protein family, which includes NEPH2 (MIM 607761) and NEPH3 (MIM 607762). The cytoplasmic domains of these proteins interact with the C terminus of podocin (NPHS2; MIM 604766), and the genes are expressed in kidney podocytes, cells involved in ensuring size- and charge-selective ultrafiltration (Sellin et al., 2003 [PubMed 12424224]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from
Nihalani et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, 2011
Localization of Neph1 to the podocyte cell membrane is altered in the presence of mutant Myo1c, and is actin dependent. Knockdown of Myo1c inhibits Neph1 membrane localization. Neph1 is critical for the maintenance of glomerular function.
