This illustrates that ficolin-2 expression in hepatocytes contributes to innate resistance to hepatotropic virus infection, but some viruses might utilize ficolin-2 to facilitate entry.
this study shows that ficolin-2 gene rs7851696 polymorphism is associated with delayed graft function and acute rejection in klidney allograft recipients
the minority (C) allele at -64 of the FCN2 gene was less frequent among juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients than among control subjects
This is the first study evaluating the FCN2 gene polymorphisms in patients with rheumatic fever and rheumatic carditis finding a protective effect of -986 GG and -4 GG genotypes in the development of rheumatic fever and the -4 AG genotype for the development of carditis.
this study did not find any association of FCN2 (encoding ficolin-2 protein) promoter polymorphisms at positions -986, -602, and -4 with dental caries in Polish children.
Serum ficolin-2 concentrations in multiple tumor patients are significantly lower than those in healthy donors.
this study shows that Ficolin-2 plasma level is associated with short- and long-term mortality in patients with necrotizing soft tissue infection in Denmark
The results suggest that the Arctic populations of East Siberia are characterised by specificity of genetic make-up responsible for the activity of L-ficolin.
study provides evidence for an important role for the lectin pathway in the inflammatory response induced by cholesterol crystals (CC) and emphasize the role of ficolin-2 and MBL in the CC-mediated inflammation occurring during atherosclerotic plaque development
FCN2 inhibits epithelial-mesenchymal transition-induced metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma via TGF-beta1/Smad signaling.
this study shows that FCN2 polymorphisms is not a major risk factor for community-acquired pneumonia in general, but that the +6424G>T SNP in the FCN2 gene predisposes to Coxiella burnetii pneumonia
subjects that were heterozygote carriers of both FCN2 + 6424 and FCN3 + 1637delC were sufficient mannan-binding lectin producers
systemic lupus erythematosus patients with low plasma ficolin-2 levels had an increased risk of having lupus nephritis
Ficolin-2 protein could bind with HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein gp120, and subsequently induce complement dependent cytotoxicity.
The FCN2 c.772G>T genotype appears to be associated with predisposition to chronic adenotonsillitis in the pediatric age group.
genotype not associated with acute cellular rejection after kidney transplantation, except for a trend toward a deleterious effect of rs7851696
Serum levels of ficolin-2 and ficolin-3 were significantly lower in the cardiac syndrome X patients compared to controls.
association of FCN2 polymorphisms with nephritis and severe cumulative damage in SLE patients; no association with rheumatoid arthritis development
-557 A>G, -64 A>C and +6424 G>T SNPs of the FCN2 gene were correlated with pulmonary TB.
FCN2 and MBL2 allele frequencies were similarly distributed in early and late age-related macular degeneration cases compared with controls
this study demonstrates that ficolins are important in initial innate host defense against Aspergillus fumigatus infections in vivo
this study shows that FCN B plays an important role in the development of collagen Ab-induced arthritis
Ficolin-2 defends against virulent Mycobacteria tuberculosis infection in vivo, and its insufficiency is associated with infection in humans.
Data show that ficolin-B is stored in and set free from immature granulocytic myeloid cells indicating a role in the early infection-induced cellular response of these inflammatory cells.
FcnA-deficient and FcnA/ficolin B double-deficient mice lack FcnA-mediated complement activation in the sera, because of absence of complexes comprising FcnA and MBL-associated serine proteases.
These results identify mouse ficolin-B as a functional member of the ficolin family activating complement via the lectin pathway.
Results show that ficolin B in mouse bone marrow is an oligomeric protein. Ficolin B contained very low, but detectable, amounts of MASP-2 and sMAP and showed detectable C4-deposition activity on immobilized N-acetylglucosamine.
Ficolin B exhibited a distinct ontogeny pattern that switched from embryonic liver to postnatal bone marrow and spleen. The cells that express ficolin B mRNA were identified as belonging to the myeloid cell lineage.
Ficolin B showed multimeric structures and revealed binding to both N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylgalactosamine. Ficolin B specifically recognized sialic acid residues. Ficolin B plays a distinct role through its unique carbohydrate-binding specificity.
The product of this gene belongs to the ficolin family of proteins. This family is characterized by the presence of a leader peptide, a short N-terminal segment, followed by a collagen-like region, and a C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. This gene is predominantly expressed in the liver, and has been shown to have carbohydrate binding and opsonic activities. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
