|Background||CRP belongs to a highly conserved phylogenetically ancient family called pentraxins, which have five identical non-covalently linked subunits. Native CRP in its pentameric form has a molecular weight of approximately 115kDa. As in humans, CRP is an acute-phase protein in pigs. It has been suspected to be directly involved in the pathogenesis of ischemic diseases through the activation of the complement system. CRP levels have been measured in porcine serum.
Median levels in specific pathogen-free animals were 5 μg/ml and increased 40- to 70-fold due to inflammation or infection with Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.
|Synonyms||PTX1, C Reactive Protein, Pentraxin-related|
