Cystatin C is a serum protein that serves as a measure of kidney function. It is produced at a constant rate by all
nucleated cells in the body. Its low molecular mass (120 amino acids) allows it to be freely filtered by the glomerular
membrane in the kidney; it is then reabsorbed and metabolized by the tubular cells.
