BACKGROUND Cell membranes and their lipids play critical roles in calcification. Specific membrane phospholipids promote the formation of calcium phosphate and become a part of the organic matrix of growing calcification. We propose that membrane lipids also promote the formation of calcium oxalate (CaOx) and calcium phosphate (CaP) containing kidney stones, and become a part of their stone matrix. METHODS Human urine, crystals of CaOx and CaP produced in the urine of healthy individuals, and… CONTINUE READING
