Description

amyloid P component, serum

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable several functions, including complement component C1q complex binding activity; low-density lipoprotein particle binding activity; and virion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including complement activation, classical pathway; modulation by host of viral process; and negative regulation of monocyte differentiation. Predicted to be located in extracellular region. Predicted to be part of protein-containing complex. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Is expressed in liver. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyloidosis. Orthologous to human APCS (amyloid P component, serum). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
