Summaries for CFHR2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CFHR2 Gene

  • This gene belongs to a family of complement factor H-related genes (CFHR), which are clustered together with complement factor H gene on chromosome 1, and are involved in regulation of complement. Mutations in CFHR genes have been associated with dense deposit disease and atypical haemolytic-uraemic syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CFHR2 Gene

CFHR2 (Complement Factor H Related 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFHR2 include Dense Deposit Disease and Macular Degeneration, Age-Related, 1. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000276911.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CFHR2 Gene

  • Involved in complement regulation. The dimerized forms have avidity for tissue-bound complement fragments and efficiently compete with the physiological complement inhibitor CFH. Can associate with lipoproteins and may play a role in lipid metabolism.
