Summaries for CFHR2 Gene

GeneCards Summary for CFHR2 Gene

CFHR2 (Complement Factor H-Related 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFHR2 include dense deposit disease. An important paralog of this gene is F13B.

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.
