The purpose of this study was to measure alpha-2-macroglobulin-IgG (alpha(2)-MG-IgG), pregnancy zone protein-IgG (PZP-IgG) and pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A-IgG (PAPP-A-IgG) complex concentrations in serum in comparison with total alpha(2)-MG, PZP and PAPP-A concentration, and to determine the possible role of such complexes. Serum samples were(More)
The authors studied the concentration of pregnancy-associated alpha2-glycoprotein (PA alpha2GP), a sensitive marker of estrogen-dependent tumors, and the association of its level with the serum content of a number of hormones: follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol (E-2), dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DEAS-S), and testosterone in(More)
System of innate immunity is a set of effector molecules and cells counteracting invasion of pathogens and their products. Alpha-2-macroglobulin (a2-MG) and lactoferrin (LF) play a significant role in primary protection of organism. A wide spectrum of transport and regulatory functions, high affinity to endocytosis receptor as well as structural features of(More)
Trophoblastic beta-glycoprotein (TBG), pregnancy-associated alpha 2-glycoprotein (AGP) and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) bind to concanavalin A, phytohemagglutinin P and pea lectin. Lentil lectin interacts with TBG only, whereas peanut lectin and castor bean lectin are characterized by affinity to AGP. Hence, TBG, AGP and AFP contain the following carbohydrate(More)
Antiserum against rat alpha 1-macroglobulin (alpha 1MG) was produced in rabbits. Antiserum against rat pregnancy-associated alpha 1-glycoprotein (PAG) was obtained by immunization with a partly purified PAG preparation and absorption of the serum with male rat serum. Acute inflammation was produced in non-pregnant female rats by a single intramuscular(More)
Rat macroglobulins were determined in blood sera and extracts of tissues of intact rats and rats with Walker carcinoma by rocket immunoelectrophoresis. The serum levels of alpha1-macroglobulin (alpha1MG) alpha2-macroglobulin (alpha2MG) and pregnancy-associated alpha1-glycoprotein (alpha1PAG) were 1.86 +/- 0.07 mg/ml, 0.12 +/- 0. 02 mg/ml and 18.32 +/- 4.07(More)
