Mayo Clinic laboratory and pathology research roundup: April 20
The research roundup provides an overview of the past week’s research from Mayo Clinic Laboratories consultants, including featured abstracts and a complete list of published studies and reviews.
We performed laser microdissection and mass spectrometry (MS/MS) in kidney biopsies from 135 individuals with PLA2R-negative MN, and used immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy to confirm the MS/MS finding, detect additional cases, and localize the novel protein. We also performed MS/MS and immunohistochemistry on 116 controls and used immunofluorescence microscopy to screen biopsy samples from two validation cohorts. Western blot and elution studies were performed to detect antibodies in serum and biopsy tissue. Via Journal of American Society of Nephrology.
