The recovery from the proliferative glomerulonephritis (GN) with reduction of hypercellularity is known in various experimental and human GN. To elucidate the participation of apoptosis in GN, we studied the experimental Thy-1.1 GN for six weeks. Apoptosis was recognized by both light and electron microscopy, and the biochemical expression of apoptosis was morphologically confirmed by in situ end-labeling method of fragmented DNA, using terminal deoxy-transferase. Mesangioproliferative GN was… CONTINUE READING
