Epithelial cell detachment in the nephrotic glomerulus: a receptor co-operativity model.

Abstract

Detachment of epithelial cells from the glomerular capillary wall correlates with the massive increase in protein leakage across the capillary wall that is characteristic of many renal diseases. We introduce the hypothesis that this detachment process involves three classes of physical events acting at the subcellular level: the receptor-mediated binding of… (More)
