Redox state of urinary albumin in patients with IgA nephropathy.

Abstract

We examined the relationship between oxidative damage and molecular instability of urinary albumin in the urine of patients with IgA nephropathy (IgAN). As measure of oxidation, we detected the free thiol group at Cys34 in albumin (albumin-Cys34) using maleimide-PEG2-biotin reagent; because decreased levels of albumin-Cys34 are correlated with increased… (More)
