Circulating anti-glomerular basement membrane autoantibodies against α3(IV)NC1 undetectable by commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.

Abstract

AIM Cases with anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) disease have been reported with linear deposit of immunoglobulin G (IgG) along GBM, but have undetectable anti-GBM antibodies in circulation by enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). We speculated that the structure of the antigens recognized by these antibodies may contribute to the negative… (More)
