Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells Liver, blood, kidney, developing gut, vessel epithelia of the umbilical cord, pancreas
Protein Function codes for a polypeptide that gives rise to two different secreted proteins - α1-microglobulin and bikunin
Biochemical Properties α1-microglobulin binds a chromophore formed during heme-binding and degradation; bikunin is a proteinase inhibitor of the inter-a-inhibitor family
Significance in milk source of α trypsin inhibitors in milk;
