ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • 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
