Alpha1 Antitrypsin (AAT) is a protein that is mainly produced in the liver that circulates throughout the body. AAT is a protein that belongs to the serpin superfamily. Encoding in humans is by the SERPINA1 gene. AAT is a protease inhibitor. Our research is finding that AAT may be extensively more important to the mechanisms of the human body functions than previously thought!
Alpha1 Antitrypsin provides antiprotease protective screens throughout the entire body, not just the lungs, as many believe!
