In case-control association studies, patients with type 2 diabetes...

    Selective impairment of gene expression and assembly of nephrin in human diabetic nephropathy. Background. Recent disclosure of podocyte proteins has unraveled previously rather mysterious mechanisms that govern glomerular perm-selectivity in health and disease. Here we addressed the role of...


    The article presents abstracts of studies related to diabetic nephropathy, which include research on the risk of early renal function decline in type 1 diabetes (T1D), the association of podocyte autophagy with the progression of proteinuria in diabetic nephropathy, and a study on the genetic...

    For yet unidentified reasons less than 50% of patients with insulin-dependent mellitus develop diabetic nephropathy. Genetic factors have been suggested as risk markers for development of nephropathy in diabetes. To further evaluate this hypothesis we studied the prevalence of nephropathy in...

    Polymorphisms in the nephrin gene and diabetic nephropathy in type 1 diabetic patients. Background. Several mutations in the nephrin gene are responsible for the lack of slit membrane of the glomeruli leading to massive proteinuria present already in utero. Variations in the nephrin gene may...

    Elevation of intracellular glucose in mesangial cells as mediated by GLUT1 may be important in initiating cellular mechanisms that cause diabetic nephropathy. To determine whether DNA sequence differences in GLUT1 confer susceptibility to this complication, single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)...

    Genetic aspects of diabetic nephropathy. Background. Diabetic nephropathy from type 2 diabetes mellitus is the most common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the United States and in Western Europe. Although patients with overt nephropathy generally experience greater cumulative glycemic...
