neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin

Also found in: Acronyms.

neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL)

A 25kDa secretory protein found in neutrophils which accumulates extensively in kidneys after ischaemic injury. NGAL has been found to be a sensitive marker of early renal failure.
