Project: Post-translational modifications of HDL in CKD patients

PI: Vera Jankowski / In co-operation with Prof. Dr. Thimoteus Speer (Saarland University Hospital, Homburg/Saar)

Patients with chronic kidney disease have a markedly elevated cardiovascular mortality risk. HDL can be rendered dysfunctional by protein modifications.

 

The aim of this project is to identify post-translational modifications of HDL in CKD patients by mass spectrometric analyses and to examine their pathophysiological effects.
