Abstract

The glomerular capillary bed seems to contribute to all subtypes of rTx-TMA by down-regulation of the endothelial transcription factors KLF2 and KLF4, indicating dedifferentiation with subsequent up-regulation of PAI-1 and down-regulation of tPA, resulting in inhibition of local fibrinolysis. Decreased glomerular expression of ADAMTS13 and CD55 could be an additional pathway toward microthrombosis exclusively in HR-TMA.
