Entrez Gene summary for C4B Gene:
This gene encodes the basic 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. 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. In addition, this gene exists as a
long form and a short form due to the presence or absence of a 6.4 kb endogenous HERV-K retrovirus in intron 9.

GeneCards Summary for C4B Gene:
C4B (complement component 4B (Chido blood group)) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with C4B include c4b deficiency, and c7 deficiency. GO annotations related to this gene include endopeptidase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is A2M.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: CO4B_HUMAN, P0C0L5
Function: Non-enzymatic component of the 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: 

  • 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
    plasma1

    Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot
    CO4B_HUMAN, P0C0L5: 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. The second copy of C4B gene present in
    some individuals has been called C4B_2 by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC). 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)

  • 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
  • Complement component 4B deficiency (C4BD) [MIM:614379]: 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
