Summaries for CFP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CFP Gene

  • This gene encodes a plasma glycoprotein that positively regulates the alternative complement pathway of the innate immune system. This protein binds to many microbial surfaces and apoptotic cells and stabilizes the C3- and C5-convertase enzyme complexes in a feedback loop that ultimately leads to formation of the membrane attack complex and lysis of the target cell. Mutations in this gene result in two forms of properdin deficiency, which results in high susceptibility to meningococcal infections. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

GeneCards Summary for CFP Gene

CFP (Complement Factor Properdin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFP include Properdin Deficiency, X-Linked and Properdin Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Immune response Lectin induced complement pathway and O-linked glycosylation. An important paralog of this gene is ADGRB1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CFP Gene
