  • CRBP-I in the renal tubulointerstitial compartment of healthy rats and rats with renal fibrosis. Van Beneden, Katrien; Van Grunsven, Leo A.; Geers, Caroline; Pauwels, Marina; Desmoulière, Alexis; Verbeelen, Dierik; Geerts, Albert; Van den Branden, Christiane // Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation;Nov2008, Vol. 23 Issue 11, p3464 

    Background. Cellular retinol-binding protein I (CRBP-I), a member of the intracellular lipid-binding protein (iLBP) superfamily, is a specific marker of quiescent stellate cells in the healthy human liver. In the diseased fibrotic/cirrhotic liver, portal and septal myofibroblasts acquire CRBP-I...

  • Isoforms of Retinol binding protein 4 (RBP4) are increased in chronic diseases of the kidney but not of the liver. Frey, Simone K.; Nagl, Britta; Henze, Andrea; Raila, Jens; Schlosser, Beate; Berg, Thomas; Tepel, Martin; Zidek, Walter; Weickert, Martin O.; Pfeiffer, Andreas F. H.; Schweigert, Florian J. // Lipids in Health & Disease;2008, Vol. 7, Special section p1 

    Background: The levels of retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) -- the carrier protein for Vitamin A in plasma -- are tightly regulated under healthy circumstances. The kidney, the main site of RBP4 catabolism, contributes to an elevation of RBP4 levels during chronic kidney disease (CKD) whereas...

  • Favorable course of steroid-responsive nephrotic children with mild initial attack. Hiraoka, Masahiro; Takeda, Nobuaki; Tsukahara, Hirokazu; Kimura, Koutu; Takagi, Kazuko; Hayashi, Shuhei; Kato, Eiji; Ohta, Kazuhide; Sudo, Masakatsu // Kidney International;May1995x, Vol. 47 Issue 5, p1392 

    The course and prognosis of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome has thus far not been found to be predicted from the severity of the manifestations at the onset. Among 66 steroid-responsive nephrotic children, eight were asymptomatic without edema and identified by chance proteinuria on a urinary...

  • A study of haptoglobin phenotypes in patients with chronic renal failure. Awadallah, Samir; Hamad, Mawieh // Annals of Clinical Biochemistry;Nov2003, Vol. 40 Issue 6, p680 

    Background: This study has investigated the association between haptoglobin (Hp) polymorphism and the occurrence of chronic renal failure (CRF) in Jordanians. Methods: Blood specimens were collected from 159 patients with CRF resulting from various predisposing conditions and from 200 healthy...

  • Prominin-2 is a cholesterol-binding protein associated with apical and basolateral plasmalemmal protrusions in polarized epithelial cells and released into urine. Florek, Mareike; Bauer, Nicola; Janich, Peggy; Wilsch-Braeuninger, Michaela; Fargeas, Christine; Marzesco, Anne-Marie; Ehninger, Gerhard; Thiele, Christoph; Huttner, Wieland; Corbeil, Denis // Cell & Tissue Research;Mar2007, Vol. 328 Issue 1, p31 

    Prominin-2 is a pentaspan membrane glycoprotein structurally related to the cholesterol-binding protein prominin-1, which is expressed in epithelial and non-epithelial cells. Although prominin-1 expression is widespread throughout the organism, the loss of its function solely causes retinal...

  • Urinary liver fatty acid-binding protein: another novel biomarker of acute kidney injury. McMahon, Blaithin A; Murray, Patrick Thomas // Kidney International;Apr2010, Vol. 77 Issue 8, p657 

    Liver fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) binds selectively to intracellular free unsaturated fatty acids and lipid peroxidation products during hypoxic tissue injury. Urinary L-FABP is a potential biomarker for the detection and assessment of acute kidney injury (AKI). Ferguson et al. have...

  • Expression of galectin-3 in nephrotic syndrome glomerulopaties in children. Ostalska-Nowicka, Danuta; Nowicki, Michal; Kondraciuk, Beata; Partyka, Malgorzata; Samulak, Dariusz; Witt, Martin // Folia Histochemica et Cytobiologica;2009, Vol. 47 Issue 2, p315 

    Background: Galectins are a family of ancient animal carbohydrate binding proteins; the name is from their description as β-galactoside-specific lectins. They have been strongly implicated in inflammation and cancer. Studies of the association of galectins with various aspects of kidney...

  • Errata.  // Diabetes Care;Nov2006, Vol. 29 Issue 11, p2571 

    Corrections to two articles that were previously published in "Diabetes Care" are presented including "IGF-Binding Protein-1 Levels Are Related to Insulin-Mediated Glucose Disposal and Are a Potential Serum Marker of Insulin Resistance" and "Who is Tested for Diabetic Kidney Disease and Who...

  • The urinary proteome and metabonome differ from normal in adults with mitochondrial disease. Hall, Andrew M; Vilasi, Annalisa; Garcia-Perez, Isabel; Lapsley, Marta; Alston, Charlotte L; Pitceathly, Robert D S; McFarland, Robert; Schaefer, Andrew M; Turnbull, Doug M; Beaumont, Nick J; Hsuan, Justin J; Cutillas, Pedro R; Lindon, John C; Holmes, Elaine; Unwin, Robert J; Taylor, Robert W; Gorman, Grainne S; Rahman, Shamima; Hanna, Michael G // Kidney International;Mar2015, Vol. 87 Issue 3, p610 

    We studied the extent and nature of renal involvement in a cohort of 117 adult patients with mitochondrial disease, by measuring urinary retinol-binding protein (RBP) and albumin; established markers of tubular and glomerular dysfunction, respectively. Seventy-five patients had the m.3243A>G...
