More Information
Product Name Alpha-2-macroglobulin
Description A major serum protein found at concentrations of 240 mg per 100 ml in men and 290 mg per 100 ml in women. Multifunctional, it promotes growth of mammalian cells in culture, stimulates the regeneration of lymphocytes in irradiated mice, possesses a transport function for zinc and is a proteinase inhibitor that controls the clotting and fibrinolytic system. Clinically levels are increased in liver cirrhosis, nephrotic syndrome, diabetes, and severe burn cases.
Background Alpha-2-macroglobulin is a protease inhibitor and cytokine transporter. It inhibits many proteases, including trypsin, thrombin and collagenase. A2M is implicated in Alzheimer disease (AD) due to its ability to mediate the clearance and degradation of A-beta, the major component of beta-amyloid deposits.
Synonyms A2M, A2MD, CPAMD5, FWP007, S863-7
