Mannose-binding protein C (MBL)

Target (abbrv.) MBL
Target (full name) Mannose-binding protein C
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL004516 (3000-66_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol MBL2
UniProt ID P11226
UniProt Comment
  • Calcium-dependent lectin involved in innate immune defense. Binds mannose, fucose and N-acetylglucosamine on different microorganisms and activates the lectin complement pathway. Binds to late apoptotic cells, as well as to apoptotic blebs and to necrotic cells, but not to early apoptotic cells, facilitating their uptake by macrophages. May bind DNA.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs5784945).
However, the sentinel SNP is not contained in SNiPA's database (1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population). Thus, no information about linked genes or further functional annotation is available.
