High Resolution Agarose Electrophoresis
Used to differentiate between normal renal function, glomerular proteinuria and tubular proteinuria. Increased glomerular permeability leads to higher concentrations of large proteins in the glomerular filtrate. Severe glomerular basement membrane damage will result in large amounts of polyclonal gammaglobulins being lost in the urine. Diminished tubular reabsorptive capacity results in a marked increase in urinary excretion of low molecular weight proteins.
