Function: Cytotoxin and helminthotoxin. Also induces non-cytolytic histamine release from human basophils. Involved in antiparasitic defense mechanisms and immune hypersensitivity reactions. The proform acts as a proteinase inhibitor, reducing the activity of PAPPA.
Cellular location: Bone marrow proteoglycan: Secreted. Note=The proform is secreted. Eosinophil granule major basic protein: Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle. Note=The proform is secreted. The mature protein is found in the matrix of the eosinophil's large specific granule (crystalloid core).
Tissue specificity: High levels of the proform in placenta and pregnancy serum; in placenta, localized to X cells of septa and anchoring villi. Lower levels in a variety of other tissues including kidney, myometrium, endometrium, ovaries, breast, prostate, bone marrow and colon.
