  • Bio Background: This gene is a member of the Regulator of ComplementActivation (RCA) gene cluster and encodes a protein with twentyshort concensus repeat (SCR) domains. This protein is secreted intothe bloodstream and has an essential role in the regulation ofcomplement activation, restricting this innate defense mechanism tomicrobial infections. Mutations in this gene have been associatedwith hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) and chronic hypocomplementemicnephropathy. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encodingdifferent isoforms, have been characterized.
