Solubility of uric acid and supersaturation of monosodium urate: why is uric acid so highly soluble in urine?

Abstract

The solubility of uric acid and the stability of supersaturation of monosodium urate (NaU) were studied in buffer solutions containing 150 mM sodium in the physiological urinary pH range at 37C. The solubility of uric acid increased with the rise in pH, and the total dissolved urate (undissociated uric acid + urate anion) concentration did not change during… (More)
