Mass (kDa):393.41
Length (aa):367
Proteomics (Proteome ID):UP000005640
Proteomics (Chromosome): Chromosome 3
Polymorphism: There are two common alleles, AHSG*1 and AHSG*2. AHSG*1 has Thr-248/Thr-256; AHSG*2 has Met-248/Ser-256. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:9003486}.
Function [CC]:Promotes endocytosis, possesses opsonic properties and influences the mineral phase of bone. Shows affinity for calcium and barium ions.
Tissue Specificity:Synthesized in liver and selectively concentrated in bone matrix. Secreted in plasma. It is also found in dentin in much higher quantities than other plasma proteins.
Disease:Alopecia-mental retardation syndrome 1 (APMR1) [MIM:203650]: A rare autosomal recessive form of alopecia. APMR1 patients show loss of hair on the scalp, absence of eyebrows, eyelashes, axillary and pubic hair, and mild to severe mental retardation. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:28054173}. Note=The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
