General Information

Biological Significance Lipocalin2 (LCN2) is a 25 kDa secretory glycoprotein, also called NGAL (neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin); NL (neutrophil lipocalin); p25; oncogene 24p3 and 25 kDa alpha-2-microglobulin related subunit of MMP9 (LCN2 forms a covalently linked, disulfide-bridged heterodimer with the 92 kDa type V collagenase (MMP9)). LCN2 is predominantly expressed in adipose tissue and liver. It belongs to the lipocalin superfamily that consists of over 20 small secretory proteins. Lipocalin 2 folds consist of 8 antiparallel beta-sheets that surround a hydrophobic pocket. A common feature of this protein family, following from its structure, is its capacity to bind and transport small lipophilic substances such as free fatty acids, retinoids, arachidonic acid and various steroids. Although lipocalin 22 was identified more than a decade ago, the physiologic function of this protein remains poorly understood. LCN2 appears to be upregulated in cells under the ?stress? (e.g. from infection, inflammation, in tissues undergoing involution to ischemia or neoplastictransformation).
