Deposition of chromatin-IgG complexes in skin of nephritic MRL-lpr/lpr mice is associated with increased local matrix metalloprotease activities.


Chromatin-IgG complexes appear as electron dense structures (EDS) in glomerular basement membranes in lupus nephritis. Here, we present results of comparative analyses of the composition of EDS in murine lupus dermatitis and nephritis. One focus was to perform an analytical approach to understand why such complex structures bind skin basement membrane… (More)
