[Protein inhibitors of crystallization. Their characterization and potential role in calcium lithiasis].

Abstract

Human saliva, pancreatic juice and urine are usually supersaturated with respect to calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate and calcium oxalate, respectively. The potential precipitation of these salts is prevented by unusual phosphoproteins which are normally present in these biological fluids. In vitro, such phosphoproteins are able to suppress the crystal… (More)
