    A 6-year-old girl who is recovering from a severe "strep" throat is brought to the physician because her urine has had a "smoky" appearance several times in the past week. Urinalysis shows trace amounts of blood and protein. Which of the following cell types initiates the repair mechanism necessary to resolve the proteinuria and hematuria?

    A ) Erythrocytes

    B ) Juxtaglomerular cells

    C ) Mesangial cells

    D ) Plasma cells

    E ) Polkissen

    F ) Proximal tubule epithelial cells
