Official Full Name
Homo sapiens serum amyloid A1 DNA.
Background
This gene encodes a member of the serum amyloid A family of apolipoproteins. The encoded protein is a major acute phase protein that is highly expressed in response to inflammation and tissue injury. This protein also plays an important role in HDL metabolism and cholesterol homeostasis. High levels of this protein are associated with chronic inflammatory diseases including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer's disease and Crohn's disease. This protein may also be a potential biomarker for certain tumors. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 11.
Synonyms
SAA1; serum amyloid A1; SAA; serum amyloid A protein; PIG4; TP53I4; tumor protein p53 inducible protein 4; SAA2; MGC111216
