Core Tip Several urinary proteins have been found in kidney stones matrix. In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that they have an important role in various process of calcium oxalate crystallization. Many of them have other functions in modulating oxidative stress, immune response and inflammation that could also influence stone formation. Yet, the exact role of these kidney stone matrix proteins  need to be established through more studies comparing urinary stone proteomics between stone formers and non-stone formers.
