Evidence for separate networks of classical and novel basement membrane collagen. Characterization of alpha 3(IV)-alport antigen heterodimer.

Abstract

The COOH-terminal non-collagenous domains (NC1) of type IV collagen from glomerular basement membranes (GBM), lens capsule basement membranes, and Descemet's membrane varied in the distribution of their NC1 subunits. All of these basement membranes (BMs) contained both classical (alpha 1(IV) and alpha 2(IV)) and novel collagen chains (alpha 3(IV), alpha 4… (More)
