1. Assessment of matrix Gla protein, Klotho gene polymorphisms, and oxidative stress in chronic kidney disease.

    Renal Failure 33(9):866 (2011) PMID 21859400

    Increased vascular calcification and oxidative stress are considered as extra renal risk factors at the pathogenesis cardiovascular events in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated matrix Gla protein (MGP) (T-138C, Glu60X, Thr83Ala) and Klotho (Cys370Ser) gene polymorphisms, serum MGP lev...
