Summaries for CFHR3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CFHR3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted protein, which belongs to the complement factor H-related protein family. It binds to heparin, and may be involved in complement regulation. Mutations in this gene are associated with decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration, and with an increased risk of atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CFHR3 Gene

CFHR3 (Complement Factor H Related 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CFHR3 include Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, Atypical 1 and Macular Degeneration, Age-Related, 1. Among its related pathways are Immune response Lectin induced complement pathway and Innate Immune System. An important paralog of this gene is CFHR4.
