Acute phase proteins

Acute phase proteins (APPs) are serum proteins whose levels change in response to inflammation, which makes them useful indicators for stress and disease. The functions of APPs remain largely unresolved. Nevertheless, various roles have been postulated, including opsonisation of foreign organisms and particles, and regulation of inflammatory processes. Examples of the latter are LPS-binding protein (LBP) and serum amyloid A (SAA), both involved in the inflammatory response to LPS. Elevation of C-reactive protein (CRP) levels relates to a number of diseases, including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and sepsis, making this APP an important indicator of inflammation. Another well-characterized APP is mannose-binding lectin (MBL), which activates the lectin complement pathway and is therefore an important element in innate immunity.
