Antibodies to GBM can cause glomerulonephritis or pulmonary hemorrhage; the combination of these 2 clinical symptoms is known as Goodpasture's syndrome. The best known autoantigen in anti-GBM nephritis is the so-called Goodpasture antigen.
In 1984, the antigen was biochemically characterized and shown to be a 29 kDa collagenase-resistant molecule of the glomerular basement membrane. The important epitope is at the C-terminal end of type IV collagen and was later shown to be localized to the NC1 domain of the α3(IV) chain.
