Figure 4: Representative SDS PAGE profiles of nontreated (lane 1) and Chase ABC-treated GAGs-containing fractions from controls (lane 2). Chase ABC-treated GAGs-containing fractions from controls (lane 3), NRD patients (lane 4), RD patients with proteinuria (lane 5), and RD patients with renal damage (lane 6). In lanes 3, 4, 5, and 6, aliquots corresponding to 2 mg of creatinine were loaded. Ovals indicate intact UTI (lane 1) and UTI depleted of chondroitin sulfate chains (lane 2). ST: molecular weight standards (kDa).
