Uromodulin, kidney function, cardiovascular disease, and mortality


Devuyst, Olivier; Bochud, Murielle (2015). Uromodulin, kidney function, cardiovascular disease, and mortality. Kidney International, 88(5):944-946.

Abstract

Uromodulin (Tamm-Horsfall protein) is exclusively produced by the kidney and is the most abundant protein excreted in normal urine. The level of uromodulin in urine could represent a useful biomarker for renal tubular function. The study of Garimella et al. adds elements into the debate, by suggesting that, in elderly adults, low urinary uromodulin concentrations in spot urine identify people at risk of progressive kidney disease and mortality above and beyond established markers of kidney disease.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
