Possible role of Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein in calcium oxalate crystallisation.

Abstract

The role of Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein (THGP) in the crystallisation of calcium oxalate was investigated. The results showed THGP to have a weak inhibitory effect on crystal growth. In contrast, urinary macromolecules showed a strong inhibitory effect. THGP should, therefore, not be considered the main component of urinary macromolecules which have a strong… (More)
