Abstract

Using immunoelectron microscopy, we observed that the expression of nephrin in GN was lower in regions where the foot processes were effaced, and comparable with that of normal controls where the foot process interspaces were preserved. The significance of our observation in the context of proteinuria in acquired GN needs further clarification.
