Primary glomerulopathy can be classified into seven essential patterns based on histopathological studies. The pathogenesis of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN), and membranous nephropathy (MN), which show glomerular IgG deposition and induce mainly nephrotic syndrome, is not known. To clarify the role of IgG subclass in glomerulonephritis, we compared serum concentrations of IgG subclasses, the ratio of serum IgG subclasses to total IgG (%IgG subclass), and glomerular deposition… Expand
Glomerular and serum IgG subclasses in diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis, membranous lupus nephritis, and idiopathic membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
The results indicate that the IgG subclass distribution is not associated with the different renal histopathologies of DPLN and MLN and shows the selective significance of IgG4 in MN, but not in MLN, another form of membranous glomerulopathy. Expand
Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis with predominant IgG2 and IgG3 deposition in a patient with IgG4-related disease
TLDR
The first report of a case of IgG4-related kidney disease and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis showing the discrepancy in IgG subclasses between the kidney interstitium and glomeruli is presented, and the favorable clinical course in the patient suggests that steroid therapy is promising in cases.

TLDR
This is the first study showing striking differences in the distribution of glomerular IgG subclass deposits between RNP-MN and L-MN groups, which may result from different immunological mechanisms. Expand
Segmental membranous glomerulonephritis in children: comparison with global membranous glomerulonephritis.
TLDR
The findings as a whole suggest that SMGN may be another glomerular disease entity with child predominance that is distinctive from GMGN. Expand
IgG4 deposits in pure and combined membranous lupus nephritis
TLDR
Lupus patients with IgG4 deposits were more likely to have renal involvement as a first manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus, and they course with a worse prognosis since they required more dialysis and have more probability of vascular inflammation on the renal biopsy. Expand
Membranous glomerulonephritis is a manifestation of IgG4-related disease.
TLDR
MGN should be included in the spectrum of IgG 4-RD and should be suspected in proteinuric IgG4-RD patients, and patients with MGN and an appropriate clinical history should be evaluated for IgG3-RD. Expand
Dissecting the relationships of IgG subclasses and complements in membranous lupus nephritis and idiopathic membranous nephropathy
TLDR
The findings suggest that disease type directly and/or indirectly influences the glomerular deposits of most of IgG subclasses and complements, and that the interactions between any pair of the markers were similar between the two diseases. Expand
Chronic glomerulonephritis associated with IgG subclass deficiency
TLDR
The different patterns of IgG subclass deficiency between the two patients may be responsible for their different glomerular pathologies, which is the first report of chronic GN in patients with Igg subclass deficiency. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that the distribution patterns of glomerular IgG subclass deposits are different in idiopathic MN and M-MN, and the strong IF intensity of glomecular IgG1 and IgG2 in M- MN may provide a possible predictor for this condition. Expand
IgG subclasses and complement pathway in segmental and global membranous nephropathy
TLDR
There was a higher deposition of IG1, IgG2, and IgG4 in patients with G-MN than in those with S-MN, whereas the intensity of C1q deposits was higher in S- MN than in G- MN patients. Expand

TLDR
If IgG subclass deposition is similar in membranous and proliferative lesions of LN, then IF staining for IgG3 and IgG4 may be helpful in distinguishing lupus from nonlupus lesions in patients with MN who are lacking a firm diagnosis of SLE. Expand
Glomerular IgG subclass distribution in human glomerulonephritis.
TLDR
Findings indicate a difference between the distribution of IgG subclasses in normal plasma and glomerular immune deposits and may be of importance in the pathogenesis of the types of glomerulonephritis studied. Expand
IgG subclass restriction of autoantibody to solid-phase C1q in membranoproliferative and lupus glomerulonephritis.
TLDR
The different subclass restriction of anti-spC1q in these two disorders suggests that antibody formation is either in response to different epitopes on the collagen-like region of C1q or that patients with SLE and MPGN mount different immunologic responses to the same antigenic stimulus. Expand
Distribution of IgG subclasses in membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
The results indicate that IgG4 is predominant in the glomerular deposits in membranous nephropathy and may play an important role in its pathogenesis. Expand

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the relatively homogeneous nature of the immunoglobulin in the immune deposits is the basis for the fibril formation in renal biopsies. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that the 7S spClq-binding IgG represents antibody to a cryptic antigen revealed only when Clq fixes to a solid surface. Expand
