CD59a / MAC-IP Protein Description
Mouse CD59A glycoprotein, also known as MAC-inhibitory protein, Membrane attack complex inhibition factor, MAC-IP, MACIF, Protectin and Cd59a, is a cell membrane potein which contains one?UPAR / Ly6 domain. CD59a / MAC-IP is expressed in all tissues examined (liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, brain and heart). Low levels of CD59a / MAC-IP is expressed in thymus. CD59a / MAC-IP is also expressed in mononuclear cells, erythrocytes and platelets. CD59a / MAC-IP is barely detected in neutrophils. CD59a and CD59b are both widely expressed in the kidneys, brain, lungs, spleen, and testis, as well as in the blood vessels of most mouse tissues. Testicular CD59a appeared to be expressed exclusively in spermatids, whereas CD59b was expressed in more mature sperm cells. CD59a and CD59b are expressed in multiple tissues, they may play some different roles, particularly in reproduction. CD59a / MAC-IP is a potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex (MAC) action. CD59a / MAC-IP acts by binding to the C8 and / or C9 complements of the assembling MAC, thereby preventing incorporation of the multiple copies of C9 required for complete formation of the osmolytic pore. CD59 is a crucial complement regulatory protein that inhibits the terminal step of the complement activation cascade by interfering with the binding of C9 to C5b-8, thus preventing the formation of the membrane attack complex (MAC).
