complement C6

ENTREZID: 729 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 5p13.1

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a component of the complement cascade. The encoded protein is part of the membrane attack complex that can be incorporated into the cell membrane and cause cell lysis. Mutations in this gene are associated with complement component-6 deficiency. Transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]
