BACKGROUND Idiopathic membranous nephropathy is a major cause of the nephrotic syndrome in adults, but its etiologic basis is not fully understood. We investigated the genetic basis of biopsy-proven cases of idiopathic membranous nephropathy in a white population. METHODS We performed independent genomewide association studies of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy from three populations of white ancestry (75 French, 146 Dutch, and 335…

The Genetic and Environmental Factors of Primary Membranous Nephropathy: An Overview from China
TLDR
A gene-environment interaction is suspected as an underlying mechanism for the increasing trend of primary membranous nephropathy in China.
Associations between m-type phospholipase A2 receptor,human leukocyte antigen gene polymorphisms and idiopathic membranous nephropathy
TLDR
It is found that, through the establishment of different genetic models, the three SNPs of PLA2R rs2715928 and rs16844715 was the risk gene of IMN, and it was closely related to IMN.
Risk alleles for IgA nephropathy-associated SNPs conferred completely opposite effects to idiopathic membranous nephropathy in Chinese Han
TLDR
A significant association with the susceptibility of idiopathic membranous nephropathy for the IgAN-correlated SNPs was revealed and these SNPs conferred a completely different role for the pathogenesis of these two kinds of diseases.
HLA-DQA1 and PLA2R1 polymorphisms and risk of idiopathic membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
This study confirms that HLA-DQA1 and PLA2R1 genotypes are risk factors for IMN, whereas no association was identified for FCGR3 CNVs.
Variants in the Promoter Region of HLA-DQA1 were Associated with Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy in a Chinese Han Population
TLDR
It is revealed that a novel independent variant in the promoter of HLA-DQA1 was associated with IMN in Chinese Han population and this locus possessed regulatory role according to the data of RegulomeDB.
The association between variants in PLA2R and HLA-DQA1 and renal outcomes in patients with primary membranous nephropathy in Western China
TLDR
It is identified that PMN patients with CT/TT genotype for rs3828323 achieved higher cumulative survival rate than patients with CC genotype and may influence hypertension and renal outcome in patients with PMN.

TLDR
The genetic variants identified thus far have an association with disease and could therefore become useful biomarkers to stratify disease risk, as well as possibly identifying novel drug targets in the near future.
HLA-DQA 1 and PLA 2 R 1 Polymorphisms and Risk of Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy
TLDR
This study aimed to validate the association ofHLA-DQA1 and PLA2R1 risk alleles with IMN in a Spanish cohort, test the putative association of FCGR3A and FC GR3BCNV with IMn, and assess the use of these genetic factors to predict the clinical outcome of the disease.
TRPC6 Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Progression of Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy
TLDR
The data suggest that TRPC6 polymorphisms do not affect susceptibility to iMN, or clinical outcome in iMN.

Familial Membranous Nephropathy: An X-Linked Genetic Susceptibility?
TLDR
Foeto-maternal alloimmunization may have triggered the disease in the youngest individual of a family with four members affected by primary Membranous nephropathy, the largest reported family with a potential X-linked susceptibility to MN.
A DQA1 allele is strongly associated with idiopathic membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
The high molecular weight genomic DNA from 31 patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy has been digested with a restriction endonuclease Taq I, electrophoresed, blotted and hybridised with probes to the HLA-DRB, -DQA,-DQB, - DPA and -DPA genes and proposed as a major disease susceptibility factor.
Analysis of HLA class II genes in Japanese patients with idiopathic membranous glomerulonephritis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that the specific HLA-DQ polymorphism correlates primarily with Japanese IMG, which is essentially different from the haplotype common to the normal Japanese population.
M-type phospholipase A2 receptor as target antigen in idiopathic membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
A majority of patients with idiopathic membranous nephropathy have antibodies against a conformation-dependent epitope in PLA(2)R, indicating that PLA( 2)R is a major antigen in this disease.

TLDR
The recent discovery of neutral endopeptidase and PLA(2)R provides new tools for monitoring human disease activity and should be of value in designing new antigen-driven therapeutic strategies.

TLDR
Lipid-lowering drug therapy is warranted in cases of the persistent nephrotic syndrome to avert the cardiovascular sequelae of hyperlipidemia.
[Immunogenetics of primary membranous glomerulonephritis].
TLDR
A strong association between major histocompatibility complex and primary membranous glomerulonephritis is confirmed, raising the possibility of a susceptibility gene being necessary for the development of that disease.
Membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
Recognizing the responsible antigen(s), and interventions directed to interfere with the specific antibodies, with regulators of glomerular permeability, and/or with factors regulating the complement activity might allow to better understand the physiopathology of MN and to organize more specific and effective treatments in the near future.

TLDR
The evidence that immunosuppressive therapy using alkylating agents is effective in iMN and improves renal survival is summarized and the risks associated with this treatment are discussed, as well as areas of uncertainty.
