Localization of adhesive glycoproteins as the extracellular matrix and their cell surface receptors (integrins) were studied in an attempt to clarify their roles in the progression and aggravation of IgA nephropathy. The relationship between their localization and factors associated with clinical progression was then investigated in 65 patients with IgA nephropathy. The indirect immunoperoxidase method was used to study the distribution of fibronectin (FN), vitronectin (VN), fibronectin… CONTINUE READING
