The Effect of Urinary Macromolecules on the Crystal Growth of Calcium Oxalate in Gel
Urinary macromolecules (for example, glycosaminoglycans, Tamm-Horsfall mucoprotein, and nephrocalcin) have long been supposed to affect crystal growth processes relevant in urinary stone formation (1, 2), However, data in the literature on this topic have been contradictory.
