The article presents the findings of a population-based CoLaus study which reports that hyperhomocysteinemia is independently associated with albuminuria. It examines whether homocysteine and uric acid are associated with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and albuminuria independently of each other. It concludes that in general adult population, elevated serum homocysteine and uric acid are associated with albuminuria independently of each other and of renal function.

    The present study tested the hypothesis that hyperhomocysteinemia (hHcys) induces podocytes to undergo epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) through the activation of NADPH oxidase (Nox). It was found that increased homocysteine (Hcys) level suppressed the expression of slit...
