  • Function
    Major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in the blood of almost all vertebrate species.
  • Tissue specificity
    Plasma; synthesized in liver. Has also been identified in a number of glycocorticoid responsive cells.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SERPINA6 are a cause of corticosteroid-binding globulin deficiency (CBG deficiency) [MIM:611489]. CBG deficiency is an extremely rare hereditary disorder characterized by reduced corticosteroid-binding capacity with normal or low plasma corticosteroid-binding globulin concentration, and normal or low basal cortisol levels associated with hypo/hypertension and muscle fatigue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the serpin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N-glycosylated; binds 5 oligosaccharide chains.
    Glycosylation in position Asn-260 is needed for steroid binding.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
  • Information by UniProt

Product Wall

At this time we have not tested the protein ab116792 in an activity assay, so we are not sure if it has steroid binding properties. We only have tested it as a standard in SDS-PAGE, WB, and ELISA.
