Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Highly Purified E B IP IH FC
Beta-2-microglobulin (B2M) is found in the serum of normal individuals and in the urine in elevated amounts in patients with Wilson disease, cadmium poisoning, and other conditions leading to renal tubular dysfunction. Like immunoglobulins, prealbumin, and the beta protein found in the amyloid of Alzheimer disease, B2M has a predominantly beta-pleated sheet structure that may adopt the fibrillar configuration of amyloid in certain pathologic states. The protein is a single polypeptide chain of molecular weight 11,600 (human 119aa, chromosome 15). B2M associates with heavy chain of class I MHC antigens on the cell surface. A transient complex of MHC-heavy chain and B2M is known to be assembled into the TAP molecule involving interation with a number of chaperones. Binding of the processed peptide releases the class I-B2M complex to the cell surface. Absence of binding leads to degradation in the proteasome. Progressive hepatic iron overload, indistinguishable from that observed in HFE, was found only in mice homozygous for the mutated B2M gene.
