  2. 12. α1-acid glycoprotein modulates the function of human neutrophils and platelets

    Author : Peter Gunnarsson; Magnus Grenegård; Henrik Thorlacius; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The acute-phase protein α1-acid glycoprotein (AGP; orosomucoid) was initially identified andcharacterised in the 1950s. The normal plasma concentration is around 0.5-1 mg/ml butduring inflammation the concentration increase several fold and the carbohydrate compositionof the protein changes. READ MORE
