Summaries for C2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for C2 Gene

  • Component C2 is a serum glycoprotein that functions as part of the classical pathway of the complement system. Activated C1 cleaves C2 into C2a and C2b. The serine proteinase C2a then combines with complement factor 4b to create the C3 or C5 convertase. Deficiency of C2 has been reported to associated with certain autoimmune diseases and SNPs in this gene have been associated with altered susceptibility to age-related macular degeneration. This gene localizes within the class III region of the MHC on the short arm of chromosome 6. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Additional transcript variants have been described in publications but their full-length sequence has not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for C2 Gene

C2 (Complement Component 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with C2 include C2 Deficiency and Macular Degeneration, Age-Related, 14, Reduced Risk Of. Among its related pathways are Immune response Lectin induced complement pathway and Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000244255.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for C2 Gene

  • Component C2 which is part of the classical pathway of the complement system is cleaved by activated factor C1 into two fragments: C2b and C2a. C2a, a serine protease, then combines with complement factor C4b to generate the C3 or C5 convertase.

    Size:
    752 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    83268 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • C2a interacts with Schistosoma haematobium TOR (via N-terminal extracellular domain). This results in inhibition of the classical and lectin pathway of complement activation, probably due to interference with binding of C2a to C4b such that C3 convertase cannot be formed. This infers resistance to complement-mediated cell lysis, allowing parasite survival and infection.
    Miscellaneous:
    • C2 is a major histocompatibility complex class-III protein.
