Chemical Heymann Nephritis Antigenic Complex

Name Heymann Nephritis Antigenic Complex
Equivalent Terms Fx1A Renal Tubular Antigen | Heymann Antigen | Heyman Nephritis Antigen | Heymann's Antigen | Heymanns Antigen | Nephritis Antigen, Heyman | Nephritogenic Antigen | Receptor Associated Protein, Heymann Nephritis | Receptor-Associated Protein, Heymann Nephritis
Definition A complex of antigenic proteins obtained from the brush border of kidney tubules. It contains two principal components LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN RECEPTOR-RELATED PROTEIN-2 and LDL-RECEPTOR RELATED PROTEIN-ASSOCIATED PROTEIN. The name of this complex is derived from researcher, Dr. Walter Heymann, who developed an experimental model of membranous glomerulonephritis (GLOMERULONEPHRITIS) by injecting this antigenic complex into rats to induce an autoimmune response.
