Example text

It consists of the following major constituents:4 • Type IV collagen, which forms cords that provide the basic superstructure of the GBM. 6 Laminin and nidogen form a tight complex, one of the major functions of which is cell adhesion to the GBM. In comparison, anionic heparan sulfate proteoglycans are largely responsible for the charge barrier to the filtration of anionic macromolecules (see below). An abnormality in type IV collagen is responsible for the disorder hereditary nephritis (Alport's syndrome), which is a progressive form of glomerular disease (at least in males) that is often associated with hearing loss and lenticular abnormalities.

67,68,69 This enhancement of Na+-H+ exchange appears to be mediated by two angiotension II-dependent pathways (see Figs. 64 There is a much lesser effect in the more distal part of the proximal tubule, where there are fewer angiotensin II receptors. Systemic vasoconstriction Angiotensin II produces arteriolar vasoconstriction, which, by elevating systemic vascular resistance, increases the systemic blood pressure. 74 The net effect is that angiotensin II plays an important role in the maintenance of blood pressure in all circumstances in which renin secretion is enhanced and circulating angiotensin II levels are high.

18 In normal subjects, however, only a very small amount of filtrate passes through these pores. 10,11,20 As illustrated in Fig. 2-3, cationic and neutral dextrans are filtered to a greater degree than anionic dextran sulfates of similar molecular sizes. This inhibitory effect of charge is due in part to electrostatic repulsion by anionic sites both in the endothelial fenestrae and in the GBM. 2,21 Albumin is a polyanion in the physiologic pH range. As with dextran sulfate, albumin filtration is only about 5 percent that of neutral dextran of the same molecular radius.
