Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
Detected in neutrophils (at protein level). Expressed in bone marrow and in tissues that are prone to exposure to microorganism. High expression is found in bone marrow as well as in uterus, prostate, salivary gland, stomach, appendix, colon, trachea and lung. Not found in the small intestine or peripheral blood leukocytes.
In addition to the monomeric mammalian progelatinase, two additional forms of progelatinase have been identified. The shorter of these additional forms is a covalently linked, disulfide-bridged protein that heterodimerizes with a short protein; an α2-Microglobulin-related protein known as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), which is moderately expressed in breast and lung tissues. NGAL belongs to the lipocalin family and has a high degree of similarity with rat α2-Microglobulin-related protein and mouse protein 24p3. NGAL is able to bind a derivative of the bacterial chemotactic peptide, suggesting that it has important immuno-modulatory functions. NGAL has been described as an inflammatory protein; it is released into the circulation as a result of the inflammatory activation of leukocytes initiated by the extra-corporeal circulation. In addition, NGAL synthesis is induced in epithelial cells in inflammatory and neoplastic colorectal diseases. In conclusion, NGAL may serve as a scavenger of bacterial products to function in the anti-inflammatory process.
