Gene information for A2M (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID2
Official gene symbolA2M
Full namealpha-2-macroglobulin
Gene summaryAlpha-2-macroglobulin is a protease inhibitor and cytokine transporter. It inhibits many proteases, including trypsin, thrombin and collagenase. A2M is implicated in Alzheimer disease (AD) due to its ability to mediate the clearance and degradation of A-beta, the major component of beta-amyloid deposits. [provided by RefSeq]
