Carbamylation is a spontaneous nonenzymatic modification of proteins and amino acids by urea-derived isocyanate, which is generally present in human serum and is increased in uremic patients (Kraus and Kraus, 2001).
Proteins carbamylated at lysine or the terminal protein amino acids may play an important role in Chronic renal failure subjects in the development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases (Raine et al., 1991; Culleton et al., 1999).
