Entrez Gene summary for C4A Gene:
This gene encodes the acidic form of complement factor 4, part of the classical activation pathway. The protein is
expressed as a single chain precursor which is proteolytically cleaved into a trimer of alpha, beta, and gamma
chains prior to secretion. The trimer provides a surface for interaction between the antigen-antibody complex and
other complement components. The alpha chain may be cleaved to release C4 anaphylatoxin, a mediator of local
inflammation. Deficiency of this protein is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and type I diabetes
mellitus. This gene localizes to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class III region on chromosome 6.
Varying haplotypes of this gene cluster exist, such that individuals may have 1, 2, or 3 copies of this gene. Two
transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011)

GeneCards Summary for C4A Gene: 
C4A (complement component 4A (Rodgers blood group)) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with C4A include felty's syndrome, and lupus erythematosus, and among its related super-pathways are Immune response Lectin induced complement pathway and Complement Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include endopeptidase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is A2M.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: CO4A_HUMAN, P0C0L4
Function: Non-enzymatic component of C3 and C5 convertases and thus essential for the propagation of the classical
complement pathway. Covalently binds to immunoglobulins and immune complexes and enhances the solubilization of
immune aggregates and the clearance of IC through CR1 on erythrocytes. C4A isotype is responsible for effective
binding to form amide bonds with immune aggregates or protein antigens, while C4B isotype catalyzes the
transacylation of the thioester carbonyl group to form ester bonds with carbohydrate antigens
Function: Derived from proteolytic degradation of complement C4, C4a anaphylatoxin is a mediator of local
inflammatory process. It induces the contraction of smooth muscle, increases vascular permeability and causes
histamine release from mast cells and basophilic leukocytes

Post-translational modifications:

  • UniProtKB: Prior to secretion, the single-chain precursor is enzymatically cleaved to yield non-identical chains alpha, beta
    and gamma. During activation, the alpha chain is cleaved by C1 into C4a and C4b, and C4b stays linked to the beta
    and gamma chains. Further degradation of C4b by C1 into the inactive fragments C4c and C4d blocks the generation
    of C3 convertase. The proteolytic cleavages often are incomplete so that many structural forms can be found in
    plasma

    About This Section

    UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: CO4A_HUMAN, P0C0L4
    Polymorphism: The complement component C4 is the most polymorphic protein of the complement system. It is the
    product of 2 closely linked and highly homologous genes, C4A and C4B. Once polymorphic variation is discounted,
    the 2 isotypes differ by only 4 amino acids at positions 1120-1125: PCPVLD for C4A and LSPVIH for C4B. The 2
    isotypes bear several antigenic determinants defining Chido/Rodgers blood group system [MIM:614374]. Rodgers
    determinants are generally associated with C4A allotypes, and Chido with C4B. Variations at these loci involve
    not only nucleotide polymorphisms, but also gene number and gene size. Some individuals may lack either C4A, or
    C4B gene. Partial deficiency of C4A or C4B is the most commonly inherited immune deficiency known in humans with
    a combined frequency over 31% in the normal Caucasian population (PubMed:11367523). C4A6 allotype is deficient in
    hemolytic activity. Allotype C4A13 is infrequent

  • Complement component 4A deficiency (C4AD) [MIM:614380]: A rare defect of the complement classical pathway
    associated with the development of autoimmune disorders, mainly systemic lupus with or without associated
    glomerulonephritis. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) [MIM:152700]: A chronic, relapsing, inflammatory, and often febrile
    multisystemic disorder of connective tissue, characterized principally by involvement of the skin, joints,
    kidneys and serosal membranes. It is of unknown etiology, but is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory
    mechanisms of the autoimmune system. The disease is marked by a wide range of system dysfunctions, an elevated
    erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and the formation of LE cells in the blood or bone marrow. Note=Disease
    susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Interindividual
    copy-number variation (CNV) of complement component C4 and associated polymorphisms result in different
    susceptibilities to SLE. The risk of SLE susceptibility has been shown to be significantly increased among
    subjects with only two copies of total C4. A high copy number is a protective factor against SLE
