Increased mononuclear cell membrane fluidity and increased B lymphocyte HLA class I expression in IgA nephropathy
Background. The functions of membrane bound proteins are regulated by the physical properties of the cell membrane. Lymphocyte dysfunction in IgA nephropathy may therefore be related to abnormal cell… Expand
