Filtering new facts about kidney disease

Nature Medicine volume 17, pages 4445 (2011) | Download Citation

Loss of kidney filter function during nephrotic syndrome results in loss of protein from the blood into the urine (proteinuria). A new study mechanistically links proteinuria to dysregulated expression and post-transcriptional modification of the secreted glycoprotein angiopoietin-like-4 in kidney glomerular podocytes (pages 117–122).
