Determinants of glomerular localization of subepithelial immune deposits: effects of altered antigen to antibody ratio, steroids, vasoactive amine antagonists, and aminonucleoside of puromycin on passive Heymann nephritis in rats.
The role of circulating immune complex deposition versus in situ complex formation in membranous nephropathy is controversial. Passive Heymann nephritis in rats resembles membranous nephropathy in man and was induced by injection of sheep antibody to rat proximal tubular epithelial cell brush border antigen (anti-Fx1A). Minutes after injection of 1 ml. of… (More)
