Alternative Name alpha-2-HS-Glycoprotein (AHSG Antibody Abstract)
Background Fetuin-A (AHSG), a 59 kDa glycoprotein, consisting of two cystatin-like domains and a smaller unrelated domain, is predominantly sinthetized in liver . It is secreted into the blood stream and deposited as a noncollagenous protein in mineralized bones and teeth. Fetuin-A occurs in high serum concentrations during foetal life, whereas its level declines following infection, inflamatory and malignancy. Fetuin-A acts as an important circulating inhibitor of ectopic calcification, frequent complication of many degenerative diseases. Low serum level of Fetuin-A is associated with vascular and valvular calcification, atherosclerosis, malnutrition and higher cardiovascular mortality in chronic renal failure, liver cancer and liver cirrhosis patients on long-term dialysis. AHSG protein represents a natural inhibitor of tyrosinase kinase activity of the insulin receptor. It may play a significant role in regulating postprandial glucose disposal, insulin sensitivity, weight gain, and fat accumulation. The serum and bone-resident Fetuin-A binds to transforming growth factor- beta and blocks TGFbeta binding to cell surface receptors.Synonyms: AHSG, Alpha-2-Z-globulin, Ba-alpha-2-glycoprotein, FETUA, Fetuin A, PRO2743
