Oxidation of lipids and proteins in the kidney have been associated with renal damage. The concentration of secondary lipid peroxidation products is used as a marker for severity and susceptibility for kidney transplantation. Oxidation also induce post-translational modifications in proteins leading to loss of function. Thiol and hydroxyl groups in amino acid residues are primary oxidation targets and lysine is susceptible to oxidation by lipid peroxidation products.
