Human Cystatin-C protein
Renal Function & Injury
ELISA, Lateral Flow
Cystatin-C is a non-glycosylated, low molecular weight, cation protein that is regularly synthesized by most nucleated cells. Cystatin-C is an endogenous protein that is known to be affected little by age, race, and muscle mass. It is not only used as a biomarker of renal function but also has positive associations with obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and cardiovascular mortality. Higher levels of serumcystatin-C were associated with increased prevalence of diabetic conditions.
