Alpha-1-microglobulin/bikunin precursor

alpha1-microglobulin, protein HC, AMBP
This gene encodes a complex glycoprotein secreted in plasma. The precursor is proteolytically processed into distinct functioning proteins: alpha-1-microglobulin, which belongs to the superfamily of lipocalin transport proteins and may play a role in the regulation of inflammatory processes, and bikunin, which is a urinary trypsin inhibitor belonging to the superfamily of Kunitz-type protease inhibitors and plays an important role in many physiological and pathological processes. This gene is located on chromosome 9 in a cluster of lipocalin genes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Leong et al., Australia. In Mol Cell Proteomics, Jan 2016
Peptides differentiating controls from IBD originate from secreted phosphoprotein 24 (SPP24, p = 0.000086, 0.009); whereas those in remission and healthy can be differentiated in UC by SPP24 (p = 0.00023, 0.001), α-1-microglobulin (AMBP, p = 0.006) and CD by SPP24 (p = 0.019, 0.05).

Urine alpha1-microglobulin is a better marker for early tubular dysfunction than beta2-microglobulin among tenofovir-exposed human immunodeficiency virus-infected men who have sex with men.
Shang et al., Shenyang, China. In Braz J Infect Dis, Jul 2015
METHODS: In a cross-sectional study urinary alpha1-microglobulin, beta2-microglobulin, N-acetyl-β-d-glucosaminidase and albumin were measured and expressed as the ratio-to-creatinine in 239 human immunodeficiency virus-infected men who have sex with men who were treatment naïve or receiving antiretroviral therapy with tenofovir-containing or non-tenofovir-containing regimens.
Preeclampsia - will orphan drug status facilitate innovative biological therapies?
Hahn, Basel, Switzerland. In Front Surg, 2014
Hence, it is with great interest to become aware of at least three novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of this disorder: exploiting either the anticoagulant activity of antithrombin, the free radical scavenging activity of alpha-1-microglobulin, or the regenerative capacity of placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells.

Fetal hemoglobin in preeclampsia: a new causative factor, a tool for prediction/diagnosis and a potential target for therapy.
Akerström et al., Lund, Sweden. In Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol, 2013
This review summarizes the present knowledge of a new potential cause of the disease and suggests a method for its prediction/diagnosis and a possible treatment, both based on the recent findings on the involvement of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) and the heme and radical scavenging protein A1M (alpha-1-microglobulin).
