As a member of the serpin superfamily of serine protease inhibitors, Serpin G1/C1 inhibitor is the physiological inhibitor of activated C1r and C1s, two serine proteases involved in the classical complement pathway. In addition, it inhibits plasma kallikrein and coagulation factor XIIa, two serine proteases involved in the processing of kininogen to release bradykinin. Therefore, it plays an important role in regulating activation of both the complement and contact systems (1). Serpin G1 deficiency results in hereditary angioedema, which is characterized by recurrent episodes of localized angioedema of the skin, gastrointestinal mucosa or upper respiratory mucosa (2). The deduced amino acid sequence of human Serpin G1 precursor consists of 500 residues with a signal peptide. The mature protein of 478 amino acid residues is heavily glycosylated (1).
