This study was undertaken to investigate the inhibitory activity of urine-derived (as opposed to serum-derived) albumin towards calcium oxalate crystallization and to compare the relative inhibitory strengths of this protein in subjects from South Africa’s black and white population groups. Albumin was purified from the urines of 20 males in each race group using immunoaffinity chromatography. The purified proteins, as well as commercial human serum albumin were tested for their inhibition of… CONTINUE READING
