In brief: Usually nothing

Some people can develop a disease called gout based on the build up of purines, which are derived from the breakdown of proteins.
This can occur if your kidneys aren't working well or you consume really excessive amounts of protein. If you eat a normal diet, excess protein in general is a non-issue.
