  • to glomerulosclerosis and glomerular disease
  • to Alzheimer disease
  • toend-stage renal disease (ESRD) in patients with type 1 diabetes
  • Variant & Polymorphism SNP
  • strongly associated with Alzheimer disease
  • CD2AP gene variants may contribute to susceptibility to ESRD in patients with type 1 diabetes

  • CD2AP-deficient mice die at 6 to 7 weeks of age from renal failure. Knockout mice exhibited exhibited nephrotic syndrome and renal failure: defects in epithelial cell foot processes, mesangial cell hyperplasia and extracellular matrix deposition
  • Mice lacking CD2AP exhibit a congenital nephrotic syndrome characterized by extensive foot process effacement
  • Mice lacking CD2AP die at 6 weeks of age. Mice with CD2AP haploinsufficiency developed glomerular changes at 9 months and had increased susceptibility to glomerular injury by nephrotoxic antibodies or immune complexes
