Immunohistochemical and western blot analyses of kidneys of homozygous newborn mice demonstrated absence of nephrin protein. No alteration was observed in expression of any glomerular basement membrane (GBM) or glomerular epithelial slit diaphragm (GESD) protein other than nephrin; proteins analyzed included integrin alpha3, podocin, alpha actinin 4, CD2AP, synaptopodin, nephronectin and type IV collagens alpha3, alpha4 and alpha5.
