C6 Summary & Protein Information

C6 Background

Gene Summary: C6 is a component of complement cascade. It is part of the membrane attack complex which can insert into the cell membrane and cause cell to lyse. People with C6 deficiency are prone to bacterial infection. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
General information above from NCBI
Catalytic activity: ATP + H(2)O = ADP + phosphate.
Subunit structure: Component of the membrane attack complex (MAC). MAC assembly is initiated by proteolytic cleavage of C5 into C5a and C5b. C5b binds sequentially C6, C7, C8 and 12-14 copies of the pore-forming subunit C9.
Subcellular location: Secreted.
Tissue specificity: Detected in heart, brain, liver, pancreas, placenta and lung.
Post-translational: All cysteine residues are assumed to be cross-linked to one another. Individual modules containing an even number of conserved cysteine residues are supposed to have disulfide linkages only within the same module.
Involvement in disease: Complement component 6 deficiency (C6D) [MIM:612446]: A rare defect of the complement classical pathway associated with susceptibility to severe recurrent infections, predominantly by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Neisseria meningitidis. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Sequence similarity: Belongs to the complement C6/C7/C8/C9 family.
Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
Contains 2 Kazal-like domains.
Contains 1 LDL-receptor class A domain.
Contains 1 MACPF domain.
Contains 2 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domains.
Contains 3 TSP type-1 domains.
