The relative occurrence of genetic variants of human alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) in relation to changes in glycosylation was studied in sera of patients with burn injury, media of cytokine-treated primary cultures of human hepatocytes and Hep 3B cells, and sera of transgenic mice expressing the human AGP-A gene. It is concluded (i) that the glycosylation of AGP was not dependent on its genetic expression and (ii) that both the variants determined by the AGP-A gene as well as by the AGP-B/B' genes are increased after inflammation or treatment with interleukins 1 and 6.
