Albuminuria is the hallmark of nephrotic syndrome (NS), a leading cause of chronic kidney disease that affects 500 million people worldwide, but the molecular mechanism underlying albuminuria-induced kidney injury remains poorly defined. Using a genetic model of nephrotic syndrome and an acquired model of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, Sun-Ji Park, PhD, in her second first-author PNAS […]
