Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CPAMD8 Gene
CPAMD8 belongs to the complement component-3 (C3; MIM 120700)/alpha-2-macroglobulin (A2M; MIM 103950) family of proteins, which are involved in innate immunity and damage control. Complement components recognize and eliminate pathogens by direct binding or by mediating opsonization/phagocytosis and intracellular killing, and A2M is a broad-spectrum protease inhibitor (Li et al., 2004 [PubMed 15177561]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
