Monoclonal antibody which detects PLA2R, the major antigen for idiopathic membranous nephropathy.
Background and Research Application
PLA2R is the major auto-antigen in the autoimmune kidney disease, membranous nephropathy. Detection of PLA2R antigen by IHC in the immune complexes present in the glomerular basement membrane is used as a diagnostic marker for the disease. PLA2R is also involved in clearance followed by suppression of their potent enzymatic activities of secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) from the blood, including group sPLA2-X and a snake venom sPLA2. PLA2R acts a tumour suppressor protein and it is associated with cell senescence and differentiated cells.

Extended information including detection system reagents: The automated Ventana BenchMark ULTRA IHC ⁄ ISH Staining Module (Ventana Co., Tucson, AZ, USA) was used together with the Ultraview 3, 3’ diaminobenzidine (DAB) version 3 detection system (Ventana Co.). Tissue sections (4 µm) were deparaffinized and incubated in EZPrep Volume Adjust (Ventana Co.). At intervals between steps the slides were washed with a TRIS-based Reaction Buffer, pH 7.6. A heat-induced antigen retrieval protocol set for 64 min was carried out using a TRIS– ethylenediamine tetracetic acid (EDTA)–boric acid pH 8.4 buffer (Cell Conditioner 1). The sections were incubated with ultraviolet inhibitor blocking solution for 4 min, then with antibody to PLA2R for a set time of 36 min at room temperature. This was followed by incubation with horseradish peroxidase-linked secondary antibody (8 min.), followed by DAB chromogen and substrate (8 min.), and copper enhancer for 4 min. Counterstain (haematoxylin II) was applied for 12 min before an incubation of 4 min with bluing reagent.
