ORM2 Protein & Antibody

Entrez Gene Summary for ORM2


ORM2 gene encodes a key acute phase plasma protein. Because of its increase due to acute inflammation, this protein is classified as an acute-phase reactant. The specific function of this protein has not yet been determined; however, it may be involved in aspects of immunosuppression. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

OMIM-Description for ORM2


Yuasa et al. (1986) performed orosomucoid phenotyping by isoelectric focusing and immunoprinting. The band pattern of desialyzed ORM indicated to these workers that the ORM system is controlled by 2 structural loci, ORM1 (138600) and ORM2. By studies of orosomucoid cDNA clones isolated from mouse liver, Cooper and Papaconstantinou (1986) showed that 2 species of ORM mRNA are transcribed from 2 distinct genes. Escallon et al. (1987) presented evidence for the expression of a second structural locus (ORM2) in human plasma as well as for the detection of genetically determined variation at the ORM2 locus in American blacks by the use of a sensitive enzyme-linked immunoblotting technique. After thin-layer polyacrylamide isoelectric focusing (IEF) in gels containing 6 M urea, the isoprotein species coded by the second locus did not segregate with the predominant alleles at the ORM1 locus. Variation in ORM2 was not observed in U.S. whites or in several other populations studied. Because of the low frequency and unlimited distribution of ORM2 variation, Escallon et al. (1987) were unable to test for linkage between the 2 ORM loci. Yuasa et al. (1997) found that the ORM1 and ORM2 genes encode 183-amino acid polypeptides. Merritt and Board (1988) found at least 21 amino acid differences between the products of the 2 genes.
