Nephrosis 1, congenital, Finnish type

Nephrin, NPHS1
This gene encodes a member of the immunoglobulin family of cell adhesion molecules that functions in the glomerular filtration barrier in the kidney. The gene is primarily expressed in renal tissues, and the protein is a type-1 transmembrane protein found at the slit diaphragm of glomerular podocytes. The slit diaphragm is thought to function as an ultrafilter to exclude albumin and other plasma macromolecules in the formation of urine. Mutations in this gene result in Finnish-type congenital nephrosis 1, characterized by severe proteinuria and loss of the slit diaphragm and foot processes.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)

Rapid Response to Cyclosporin A and Favorable Renal Outcome in Nongenetic Versus Genetic Steroid-Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome.
German Pediatric Nephrology Association (GPN) et al., Essen, Germany. In Clin J Am Soc Nephrol, Jan 2016
RESULTS: The overall mutation detection rate was high at 57% (97% in CNS and 41% in SRNS); 85% of all mutations were identified by the analysis of three single genes only (NPHS1, NPHS2, and WT1), accounting for 92% of all mutations in patients with CNS and 79% of all mutations in patients with SRNS.

Nishinakamura et al., Kumamoto, Japan. In J Am Soc Nephrol, Dec 2015
Here, using transcription activator-like effector nuclease-mediated homologous recombination, we generated human iPS cell lines that express green fluorescent protein (GFP) in the NPHS1 locus, which encodes nephrin, and we show that GFP expression facilitated accurate visualization of nephrin-positive podocyte formation in vitro.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis: molecular genetics and targeted therapies.
Liapis et al., Saint Louis, United States. In Bmc Nephrol, 2014
Recent advances show that human focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a primary podocytopathy caused by podocyte-specific gene mutations including NPHS1, NPHS2, WT-1, LAMB2, CD2AP, TRPC6, ACTN4 and INF2.

Genes and podocytes - new insights into mechanisms of podocytopathy.
Koziell et al., London, United Kingdom. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), 2013
After decades of primarily morphological study, positional cloning of the NPHS1 gene was the landmark event that established aberrant podocyte genetics as a pivotal cause of malfunction of the glomerular filter.
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is induced by microRNA-193a and its downregulation of WT1.
Kerjaschki et al., Vienna, Austria. In Nat Med, 2013
Decreased expression levels of WT1 lead to downregulation of its target genes PODXL (podocalyxin) and NPHS1 (nephrin), as well as several other genes crucial for the architecture of podocytes, initiating a catastrophic collapse of the entire podocyte-stabilizing system.
SIRPα interacts with nephrin at the podocyte slit diaphragm.
Igarashi et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Febs J, 2012
In the glomeruli of CNS patients carrying mutations in NPHS1, where SD formation is disrupted, the expression of SIRPalpha as well as Neph1 and nephrin was significantly decreased, indicating that SIRPalpha is closely associated with the nephrin complex
