Identification of a major epitope recognized by PLA2R autoantibodies in primary membranous nephropathy.
 

Author(s): Maryline Fresquet, Thomas A Jowitt, Jennet Gummadova, Richard Collins, Ronan O'Cualain, Edward A McKenzie, Rachel Lennon, Paul E Brenchley

Journal: J. Am. Soc. Nephrol.. 2015 Feb;26(2):302-13.

 

Phospholipase A2 receptor 1 (PLA2R) is a target autoantigen in 70% of patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy. We describe the location of a major epitope in the N-terminal cysteine-rich ricin domain of PLA2R that is recognized by 90% of human anti-PLA2R autoantibodies. The ...
