Urinary Mitochondrial DNA Identifies Renal Dysfunction and Mitochondrial Damage in Sepsis-Induced Acute Kidney Injury

Figure 4

Urinary mitochondrial DNA copy number correlates with markers of renal injury and dysfunction. Urinary COX3/nDNA levels negatively correlated with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR; b) but positively with serum creatinine (a), urinary neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL; c), and kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1; d) levels in septic patients.
