AGP (a 1-acid Glycoprotein) is an acute phase plasma protein synthesized by the liver. It functions to regulate the interaction between blood cells and endothelial cells, and together with haptoglobin and C reactive protein, it also mediates the extravasation of cells during infection and inflammation. Expression of AGP is induced by acute-phase stimulatory agents such as bacterial lipopolysaccharides. AGP has a high affinity, low capacity binding for basic drugs at physiological pH. In human plasma, AGP is found at levels of 0.5-1.4 mg/ml, though this is elevated during acute inflammation, and, as a result, levels of this protein can be used to diagnose inflammatory conditions. Multiple AGP genes exist, including AGP-1, AGP-2, AGP-3 and AGP-8. AGP-1 and AGP-2 contain five and six potential N-glycosylation sites, respectively. Abnormal expression of the APG-1 gene is linked to sarcoidosis and other immunogenetic diseases, while mutations in the APG-2 gene are associated with different types of carcinomas.
