Background: Fetuin A/AHSG
Human Fetuin A, also known as alpha 2-Heremans-Schmid glycoprotein, is encoded by the AHSG gene. It is a major plasma protein and a member of the cystatin superfamily of protease inhibitors (1, 2). It is expressed by hepatocytes, the principal cell source, and by monocyte/macrophages (3). The major form of plasma Fetuin A corresponds to a disulfide bond-linked two chains derived from the single chain (4). Human Fetuin A has a number of functions. It is a negative acute-phase protein with normal circulating levels in adults (300 - 600 μg/mL), which fall significantly (30 - 50%) during injury and infection (5). It enhances entry of cationic inhibitors into macrophages (6). It inhibits both insulin receptor autophosphorylation and undesirable calcification (6, 7). The purified rhFetuin A corresponds to the single chain, which can be converted to the two-chain form by rhFurin (R&D Systems, Catalog # 1503-SE) in vitro. However, the conversion does not enhance its inhibitory activity against rhCathpesin V, a cysteine protease.
