Product Description

α2-Macroglobulin

Application Notes

α2-Macroglobulin inhibits all classes of endoproteases by forming a complex with the protease. When the protease cleaves the macroglobulin "bait" sequence, the macroglobulin rearranges and traps the protease. It inhibits bromelain, chymotrypsin, elastase, endoproteinase Arg-C, endoproteinase Glu-C, ficin, papain, plasmin, subtilisin, thermolysin, thrombin, and trypsin. It is known to inhibit neurite outgrowth by blocking the activity of b-nerve growth factor.

Biochemical Physiological Actions One mg of α2-macroglobulin will inhibit a minimum of 10 μg trypsin with an activity of 10,000 BAEE un/mg protein. α2-Macroglobulin is found abundantly in plasma and interstitial fluids. The protease-α2-M balance plays an important role in mediating inflammatory tissue destruction. Serum levels of α2-M and protease-α2-M complexes are increased in patients with sepsis, emphysema, periodontitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other inflammatory diseases, and oxidant inactivation of α2-M may contribute to tissue destruction during inflammation.
