OBJECTIVE: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and minimal change disease are primary renal diseases representing with proteinuria. Following the identification of the role of podocyte-related molecules in the glomerular filtration barrier and the detection of the pivotal role of nephrin in the development of congenital nephrotic syndrome, the assessment and expression profiles of these proteins in acquired nephrotic syndrome have also come into question.
