Abstract

Knowledge of podocyte biology is growing rapidly. Podocytes are crucially involved in most hereditary diseases affecting the glomerulus, which all exhibit podocyte-specific defects, that is, foot process effacement and protein leakage. Efforts to understand molecular mechanisms causing these derangements are increasingly successful and will allow a better targeting of interventions to halt the progression of chronic renal disease.
