Deepak Nihalani  

Research Interest:

Dr. Deepak Nihalani research aim is to understand the regulation and function of the proteins that are the critical components of this slit diaphragm and how they assemble to form a functional glomerular filtration barrier. Although not proven, it is believed that the slit diaphragm is formed by homophilic and heterophilic interactions between the extracellular domains of various proteins including Nephrin, Neph1, Fat1 and Fat2. Intracellularly, proteins such as ZO-1, CD2AP, Nck, and Grb2 are thought to connect the slit diaphragm membrane proteins Neph1 and Nephrin to the actin microfilaments thereby forming the intracellular signaling network
