The present case illustrates that on serial UPEP studies elevated B2M levels, in particular, can potentially be confused with persistent Bence Jones proteinuria because of this protein's association with renal dysfunction and electrophoretic migration pattern.
Furthermore, in 33 of 202 cases, the F+B [kappa] and F+B [lambda] lanes showed monoclonal light chains (i.e., true Bence Jones proteinuria) without accompanying reactivity with the GAM antisera or with the F [kappa] or F [lambda] antiserum.
Prerenal proteinuria (Bence Jones proteinuria), however, is suspected when additional bands are visualized at either [M.sub.r] 25 000, which corresponds to light chain monomers, or [M.sub.r] 50 000 for light chain dimers.

The algorithms for MCs also identified five of nine samples from patients with Bence Jones proteinuria. All five contained identifiable peaks attributable to circulating light chains, despite a lack of visible bands on HRAGE in two cases.
