Literature associating SERPINA1 and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade A (alpha-1 antiproteinase, antitrypsin), member 1; Inhibitor of serine proteases. Its primary target is elastase, but it also has a moderate affinity for plasmin and thrombin. Irreversibly inhibits trypsin, chymotrypsin and plasminogen activator. The aberrant form inhibits insulin-induced NO synthesis in platelets, decreases coagulation time and has proteolytic activity against insulin and plasmin; Belongs to the serpin family.
