Summary of "In memoriam: Walter Gams (1934-2017)."

Prof. Dr. Walter Gams, an internationally famous taxonomist, died on 9 April 2017 in Bomarzo, Italy. He spent his career at the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures (CBS) in the Netherlands. Walter specialized in the taxonomy and nomenclature of fungi, in particular little-differentiated hyphomycetes, and was considered the world authority on the identification of soil fungi. He was influential in shaping the rules for fungal nomenclature for several decades. He was presented with the Distinguished Mycologist Award of the Mycological Society of America in 2005. Walter was an all round naturalist and teacher, and an avid amateur musician and patron of the arts. He travelled widely and had friends all over the world, who miss his hospitality and generous spirit.

A complex of antigenic proteins obtained from the brush border of kidney tubules. It contains two principal components LDL-RECEPTOR RELATED PROTEIN 2 and LDL-RECEPTOR RELATED PROTEIN-ASSOCIATED PROTEIN. The name of this complex is derived from researcher, Dr. Walter Heymann, who developed an experimental model of membranous glomerulonephritis (GLOMERULONEPHRITIS) by injecting this antigenic complex into rats to induce an autoimmune response.
