Structural characterization of glycoprotein NGAL, an early predictive biomarker for acute kidney injury.

Abstract

Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a promising new renal biomarker that can reduce the time to diagnose acute kidney injury (AKI). There is little information available about complex glycans on NGAL. Detailed structural characterization of NGAL is necessary to understand the structural variability of NGAL used as a standard in the NGAL… (More)
