Abstract

Objective To verify possible associations between adenosine aminohydrolase (ADA) and AMP-aminohydrolase (AMPDA) to E3 SUMO-protein ligase NSE2 (NSMCE2) in patients with renal stones. And to isolate, purify and characterize ADA in patients with renal stones and healthy group. Methods A total of 60 renal stones patients and 50 control were enrolled in a case–control study. The blood urea, creatinine, uric acid, protein, albumin, ADA and AMPDA were measured by colorimetric tests. The serum NSMCE2 was measured by ELISA. Results Serum ADA, AMPDA and specific activity of enzymes showed significant decrease (P < 0.05) in patients with renal stones compared to control group, mean levels of sera NSMCE2 and uric acid had a significant increase (P < 0.01 and P < 0.05, respectively) in patients compared to control group. Conclusions The present study suggests that ADA, AMP deaminase and NSMCE2 can be used as a indicator to monitor the DNA damage and inflammation disorders in the patients with kidney stones.
