The point mutations that are responsible for these variants have less effect on β-sheet A than does the Z variant. Thus, the associated rate of polymer formation is much slower than that for Z α1-antitrypsin, which results in less retention of protein within hepatocytes, milder plasma deficiency, and the lack of a clinical phenotype. However, if a mild, slowly polymerizing I or S variant of α1-antitrypsin is inherited with a rapidly polymerizing Z variant, then the two can interact to form heteropolymers within hepatocytes.
Several other proteins can loosely be considered as having antioxidant activity and thus protective against ROS. Heme oxygenase catalyzes the first step in heme degradation. 1) is the inducible isoform that can be upregulated by a wide range of stresses. Bile pigments generated by heme cleavage are believed to have antioxidant properties; thus, HMOX-1 induction is protective during cellular oxidant injury, and overexpression of HMOX-1 in lung tissue protects against hyperoxia. The HMOX1 gene 5′-flanking region contains stretches of GC repeats that are highly polymorphic in length.
