Summaries for CFB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CFB Gene

  • This gene encodes complement factor B, a component of the alternative pathway of complement activation. Factor B circulates in the blood as a single chain polypeptide. Upon activation of the alternative pathway, it is cleaved by complement factor D yielding the noncatalytic chain Ba and the catalytic subunit Bb. The active subunit Bb is a serine protease which associates with C3b to form the alternative pathway C3 convertase. Bb is involved in the proliferation of preactivated B lymphocytes, while Ba inhibits their proliferation. This gene localizes to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class III region on chromosome 6. This cluster includes several genes involved in regulation of the immune reaction. Polymorphisms in this gene are associated with a reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration. The polyadenylation site of this gene is 421 bp from the 5' end of the gene for complement component 2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CFB Gene

CFB (Complement Factor B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFB include Macular Degeneration, Age-Related, 14, Reduced Risk Of and Complement Factor B Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Immune response Lectin induced complement pathway and Creation of C4 and C2 activators. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase activity and complement binding. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000244255.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CFB Gene

  • Factor B which is part of the alternate pathway of the complement system is cleaved by factor D into 2 fragments: Ba and Bb. Bb, a serine protease, then combines with complement factor 3b to generate the C3 or C5 convertase. It has also been implicated in proliferation and differentiation of preactivated B-lymphocytes, rapid spreading of peripheral blood monocytes, stimulation of lymphocyte blastogenesis and lysis of erythrocytes. Ba inhibits the proliferation of preactivated B-lymphocytes.

Two major variants, F and S, and 2 minor variants, as well as at least 14 very rare variants, have been identified. The variants His-9 and Gln-32 are associated with a reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) [MIM:603075]. ARMD is a multifactorial eye disease and the most common cause of irreversible vision loss in the developed world.

  • Complement factor B deficiency (CFBD) [MIM:615561]: An immunologic disorder characterized by increased susceptibility to bacterial infections, particularly Neisseria infections, due to a defect in the alternative complement pathway. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24152280}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Hemolytic uremic syndrome atypical 4 (AHUS4) [MIM:612924]: An atypical form of hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is a complex genetic disease characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure and absence of episodes of enterocolitis and diarrhea. In contrast to typical hemolytic uremic syndrome, atypical forms have a poorer prognosis, with higher death rates and frequent progression to end-stage renal disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17182750, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20513133}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Susceptibility to the development of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome can be conferred by mutations in various components of or regulatory factors in the complement cascade system. Other genes may play a role in modifying the phenotype.
