Ficolins are a group of proteins which consist of acollagen-like domain and a fibrinogen-like domain. In human serum,there are two types of ficolins, both of which have lectinactivity. The protein encoded by this gene is a thermolabilebeta-2-macroglycoprotein found in all human serum and is a memberof the ficolin/opsonin p35 lectin family. The protein, which wasinitially identified based on its reactivity with sera frompatients with systemic lupus erythematosus, has been shown to havea calcium-independent lectin activity. The protein can activate thecomplement pathway in association with MASPs and sMAP, therebyaiding in host defense through the activation of the lectinpathway. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and twovariants, each encoding a distinct isoform, have been identified.
