Description

Analysis Note

Protein determined by Lowry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

C reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein. Serum levels in patients with atherosclerosis is predictive of increased risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke. The cytokine IL-6 is thought to be the key mediator in hepatocyte secretion of acute phase proteins including CRP. CRP mediates innate immunity by binding to microbial polysaccharides and to ligands exposed on damaged cells. The binding activates the classical complement pathway (C1, C4, C2, C3 but not C5-9). Opsonization of the substrates leads to their uptake by phagocytic cells and limits the inflammatory response.
