Hi Eilat!

After having isolated the glomeruli, homogenize them in TRI-reagent (or 
RNA-Clean, Trizol....) according to the protocol supplied with the 
reagent. Also the RNA, DNA and protein isolation will follow the given 
protocol. 
This works very well in our labs.

We also isolated glomerular mesangial cells according to:
Lovett D. H., Ryan J. L., Sterzel R. B. (1983)A thymocyte-activating 
factor derived from glomerular mesangial cells. J. Immunol. 130, 
1796-1801
and used them as primary cultures to passage 25. For RNA preparation
from this cells we also used RNA-Clean or TRI-reagent.

hope this helps....

bye
	Heinz
