Amino Acids, Proteins and Porphyrins
All of the following are acute phase proteins except
|A||Alpha — one antitrypsin|
|D||Major basic protein|
Acute phase proteins: → The level of certain protein in plasma increase during acute inflammatory
states or secondary to certain tissue damage.
a. C — Reactive protein (CRP) (so named because it reacts with C-polysaccharides of pneumococci)
b. α1— Anti trypsin
d. α1— acid glycoprotein
The synthesis of Retinol-binding proteinin response to infection is reduced. it is a negative acute
a. Hemopexin→heme - binding protein.
b. Major basic protein →In chronic inflammation, Eosinophils are phagocytic and undergoes
activation. Their granules contains major-basic-protein, a highly cationic protein that is toxic to
