• transthyretin
  • Examples of specific blood proteins: Prealbumin (transthyretin) Alpha 1 antitrypsin (neutralizes trypsin that has leaked from the digestive system) Alpha 1 acid glycoprotein Alpha 1 fetoprotein alpha2-macroglobulin Gamma globulins Beta-2 microglobulin Haptoglobin Ceruloplasmin Complement component 3 Complement component 4 C-reactive protein (CRP) Lipoproteins (chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, HDL) Transferrin Prothrombin MBL or MBP Anderson NL, Anderson NG (1977).

  • RBP is synthesised by hepatic parenchymal cells where it becomes bound to its ligand retinol and is then released into the circulation, where it binds further to the protein transthyretin, to form a transporting complex. (acris-antibodies.com)
  • This Monoclonal Antibody recognizes reduced and carboxy-methylated RBP (RCM-RBP) as well as the circulatory RBP but not the native RBP, thereby suggesting that its epitope becomes accessible either on unfolding or upon binding of RBP to transthyretin (prealbumin). (acris-antibodies.com)
  • Once secreted into the blood with bound retinol, the vitamin carrier circulates complexed with transthyretin prior to vitamin delivery at the plasma membrane through a receptor-mediated mechanism. (acris-antibodies.com)
  • markedly
  • However, each of these subgroups, though electrophoretically homogeneous, consists of a great variety of proteins with different biological properties and markedly different sizes and chemical properties other than net charge. (thefreedictionary.com)
