A2M, CT (A2M, CPAMD5, Alpha-2-macroglobulin, C3 and PZP-like alpha-2-macroglobulin domain-containing protein 5)
Description:
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. [provided by RefSeq].
