A monoclonal antibody (1G10) recognizes a novel human mesangial antigen.


We have identified a unique mesangial matrix protein of the human glomerulus by using a monoclonal antibody, 1G10, generated against culture human glomerular cells. By immunofluorescence, the antigen recognized by 1G10 (1G10 antigen) is present in mesangium and smooth muscle tissue and cannot be detected in any other tissue examined. Immunoelectron… (More)
