About AHSG / Alpha-2-HS-Glycoprotein:
Alpha-2-HS-Glycoprotein is a protein coding gene type that is a negatively charged serum. Synthesized by hepatocytes, the protein contains two polypeptide chains. It is an important protein that has many processes such as brain development and the creation of the bones tissue and protecting it. If the gene fails to do its job, it will become lean and will defect the running of the proteins.
Alpha-2-HS-Glycoprotein which is commonly known as AHSG is a variant gene that helps basal metabolic rate and body composition development. It is an important factor to ensure normality of the production of body fat and insulin sensitivity.
AHSG is made up of two polypeptide chains which is part of the function of endocytosis.
In recent studies when AHSG is in an incubated environment with metalloproteinases it started to degrade by matrilysin. It has also shown that it is in the stages of becoming an important part of the tumor progression to the plasma membrane. There are still ongoing experiments to see how it reacts and helps cancer tumors by witnessing the progression of the tumor by hypnotizing the fetuin as the cell types do not have the ability to express fetuin on its own. The fetuin surrounds the tumor cell. Serum and body fluids often contain very high levels of concentrate of embryos and fetuses which result in them binding together to modulate signal transduction. With all this in mind, there is constantly studies and experiments being completed on AHSG.
