Gene: AHSG (alpha 2-HS glycoprotein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AHSG
Name: alpha 2-HS glycoprotein
Description: Predicted to have cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Involved in acute-phase response; positive regulation of phagocytosis; and regulation of inflammatory response. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus. Implicated in coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of gestational diabetes; myocardial infarction; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: A2HS; AHS; alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein; alpha-2-Z-globulin; APMR1; ba-alpha-2-glycoprotein; FETUA; fetuin A; fetuin-A; HSGA
