alpha-1-Antichymotrypsin Information for Pathologists
Also called ?1-ACT. Acute phase protein / plasma protease inhibitor, mainly produced by liver in response to cytokines such as oncostatin M. May limit tissue damage produced by excessive inflammation associated proteolysis. Also localizes to nuclei of hepatic cells to control chromatin condensation and proliferation (Gastroenterology 2013;144:818). Homologous to alpha-1-antitrypsin.
Notable Clinical Features:
Heart: has role in pathophysiology of heart failure (Circ Heart Fail 2013;6:853). Kidney: part of plasma molecular profile associated with acute cellular renal allograft rejection (Transplantation 2011;92:388). Skin: has role in skin repair (J Biol Chem 2011;286:28889). Umbilical cord: may help differentiate between stillborns and liveborns (Pathol Res Pract 2009;205:534). Uses by pathologists
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Marker for acinic / acinar cell carcinoma in breast (Case Rep Oncol Med 2013;2013:372947), pancreas, salivary gland.
