Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are a group of phylogenetically conserved acute-phase reactants. Evidence is presented here for the existence of four genetic loci for the human serum amyloid A (SAA) genes. The first locus was defined by three contiguous lambda clones spanning approximately 30 kb which contained a single SAA gene encoding apoSAA1 beta. Allelic variants were isolated at the second locus: a novel clone encoding apoSAA2 alpha was distinguished from SAA2 beta (previously known as… CONTINUE READING
