GeneCards Summary for C5AR1 Gene
C5AR1 (Complement Component 5a Receptor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with C5AR1 include meningoencephalitis and mast-cell sarcoma. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Complement and coagulation cascades. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and complement component C5a binding. An important paralog of this gene is FPR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for C5AR1 Gene
Receptor for the chemotactic and inflammatory peptide anaphylatoxin C5a (PubMed:1847994, PubMed:8182049, PubMed:7622471, PubMed:9553099, PubMed:10636859, PubMed:15153520). The ligand interacts with at least two sites on the receptor: a high-affinity site on the extracellular N-terminus, and a second site in the transmembrane region which activates downstream signaling events (PubMed:8182049, PubMed:7622471, PubMed:9553099). Receptor activation stimulates chemotaxis, granule enzyme release, intracellular calcium release and superoxide anion production (PubMed:10636859, PubMed:15153520).
The complement system is a biochemical pathway involved in both innate and adaptive immune responses. There are four main functions of the complement system; lysis of microorganisms, promotion of phagocytosis, triggering inflammation and immune clearance.
