AAT also inhibits other serine proteases (Crystal 1996) and consequently is also known as "[alpha.sub.1]-proteinase inhibitor." This neutrophil elastase is an omnivorous protease that can result in "genetic emphysema" from damage primarily to the lower lobes of the lungs (Pierce 1988), as well as liver disease, which is expressed as neonatal cholestasis that may progress to juvenile cirrhosis and slowly progressive liver disease in the adult (Mahadeva and Lomas 1998).
