Canine X-linked hereditary nephritis is an animal model for human X-linked hereditary nephritis with a premature stop codon in the alpha5(IV) gene of collagen type IV. We used this model to examine the other alpha(IV) chains at the mRNA and protein level in the kidney, since in human X-linked hereditary nephritis, the alpha3(IV) and alpha4(IV) chains are often absent from the glomerular basement membrane, although both are encoded by autosomal genes. cDNA probes for the alpha1(IV)-alpha6(IV… CONTINUE READING
