Ferroportin-1; a negative acute-phase protein
(Naz et al.
Because the latter is a negative acute-phase protein
, GlycA elevations in inflammatory states are presumed to reflect increased concentrations of the former 4 proteins.
In the current study, detection of anti-Aspergillus antibodies, Aspergillus antigen, and Aspergillus toxin (fumigaclavine A), protein electrophoresis and measurement of acute-phase protein
concentrations were performed on serum of 18 adult and plasma of 21 juvenile gyr-saker hybrid falcons (Falco rusticolus X Falco cherrug).
The rapid, disposable, in-office assay provides the interpretation of both Myxovirus Resistance Protein A (MxA), an interferon derivative that becomes increased in the presence of acute viral infection, as well as C-reactive Protein (CRP), an acute-phase protein
that is higher when bacterial infection is present.
The acute-phase protein
response to infection in oedematous and nonoedematous protein-energy malnutrition.
CRP is an acute-phase protein
produced by the liver.
Fundamentally, an acute MI triggers a systemic response to a necrotic insult characterized by leukocytosis and acute-phase protein
Classification of systemic amyloidosis AL (light-chain immunoglobulin) Plasma-cell/immunocyte dyscrasia Multiple myeloma AA (serum protein A) Acute-phase protein
produced in response to inflammation Rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, osteomyelitis, tuberculosis, familial Mediterranean fever Gastric carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, Hodgkin's disease A[beta]2M ([[beta].
Acute-phase response of human hepatocytes: Regulation of acute-phase protein
synthesis by interleukin-6.
It becomes even more concentrated in the blood of chickens that are fighting infections, turning out to be a major acute-phase protein
This acute-phase protein
response is an important component of the SIR, since most acute-phase reactants serve to modulate the inflammatory process.
