Polymerisation underlies alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency, dementia and other serpinopathies.


We review here the molecular mechanisms that underlie alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency and show how an understanding of this mechanism has allowed us to explain the deficiency of other members of the serine proteinase inhibitor or serpin superfamily. These include the deficiency of antithrombin, C1-inhibitor and alpha1-antichymotrypsin in association with… (More)
