anti-B2M antibody
Beta 2-microglobulin is the low molecular weight component of HLA antigens and as such is involved in the presentation of endogenous antigens, activation of T lymphocytes and functional emergence of natural killer cells. It is found in the serum of normal individuals and in the urine in elevated amounts in patients with Wilson disease, cadmium poisoning and other conditions leading renal tubular dysfunction.

NCBI Summary for B2M
This gene encodes a serum protein found in association with the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I heavy chain on the surface of nearly all nucleated cells. The protein has a predominantly beta-pleated sheet structure that can form amyloid fibrils in some pathological conditions. The encoded antimicrobial protein displays antibacterial activity in amniotic fluid. A mutation in this gene has been shown to result in hypercatabolic hypoproteinemia.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]
UniProt Comments for B2M
B2M: Component of the class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC). Involved in the presentation of peptide antigens to the immune system. Heterodimer of an alpha chain and a beta chain. Beta-2- microglobulin is the beta-chain of major histocompatibility complex class I molecules. Polymers of beta 2-microglobulin can be found in tissues from patients on long-term hemodialysis. Belongs to the beta-2-microglobulin family.
