RESUMO

SerpinB2 or plasminogen activator inhibitor type 2 (PAI-2) is widely described as an inhibitor of extracellular urokinase plasminogen activator. However, the evidence that this represents the physiological role of SerpinB2 is not overly compelling. SerpinB2 is substantially up-regulated under multiple inflammatory conditions, and dysregulated expression and polymorphisms are associated with several human inflammatory diseases. A bewildering array of diverse functions and activities have been attributed to SerpinB2, but despite ≈900 publications in the field, no coherent view of what SerpinB2 does in vivo has emerged. Although SerpinB2 is abundantly expressed by activated macrophages and a range of other haematopoietic and non-haematopoietic cells, SerpinB2-/- mice have surprisingly few phenotypes. However, SerpinB2-/- mice were recently shown to generate increased Th1 responses, suggesting that at least one function of SerpinB2 is sculpting of the adaptive immune response.
