Beta-2-microglobulin (B2M) is a serum protein found in association with the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I heavy chain on the surface of nearly all nucleated cells (1). It is a major component forming amyloid deposits in patients with hemodialysis-associated amyloidosis (HAA), a serious complication of long-term hemodialysis (2). B2M is found to contain two antiparallel beta-sheets, each of four beta-strands with the beta-sheets being connected by a single disulfide linkage. No evidence for any regular helical structure is found (3). B2M is an example of a low molecular weight serum protein, with a prominent beta-pleated sheet structure, that may adopt the fibrillar configuration of amyloid in certain pathologic states (4).
