Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
a2-Macroglobulin (a2M), is a 720kD homotetrameric glycoprotein composed of four identical 180kD subunit. a2M shares with other a-macroglobulins, like the complement components C3 and C4 and the pregnancy zone protein PZP, an extraordinary binding capacity for a variety of ligands. This allows the a-macroglobulins to serve as humoral defense barriers against foreign peptides in the plasma. a2M interacts and captures virtually any proteinase, often referred to as a panprotease inhibitor. In the brain of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, a2M also has been localized to diffuse amyloid plaques, supporting an important role for a2M in AD etiopathology.
