Normal and abnormal aspects of proteinuria. Part I: Mechanisms, characteristics and analyses of urinary protein. Part II: Clinical considerations

Experimental Pathology
E P Lillehoj, M D Poulik


Part I highlights the mechanisms of glomerular filtration and tubular reabsorption of plasma proteins, selected characteristics of urinary proteins based upon electrophoretic properties and recent advances in clinical laboratory analysis of proteinuria. Both structural characteristic of the glomerular capillary wall and molecular properties of plasma proteins are important determinants of glomerular filtration. Proteins filtered by the glomerulus subsequently appear in urine only after escaping the efficient mechanisms of tubular reabsorption. Albumin is one such protein and constitutes the major protein in normal urine although trace amounts of alpha, beta, and gamma globulins are also detectable. Several techniques of protein analysis have thus been developed to specifically measure albumin as well as other plasma proteins. Other methods have been adapted to measure total urinary protein content enabling the clinician to readily monitor renal function in health and disease. The second part of this review will consider conditions associated with proteinuria in both asymptomatic individuals and patients with renal disease. Asymptomatic proteinuria encompasses states of excess protein excretion during conditions of orthostasis, ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.
