complement component 5a receptor 1

Human complement C5a is a 74-amino acid glycopeptide generated during complement activation from the ?-chain of complement C5. C5a is a potent chemotactic factor for human peripheral blood neutrophils and monocytes, and is believed to play an important ro

c9 Protein, complement component 9 - Creative BioMart

This gene encodes the final component of the complement system. It participates in the formation of the Membrane Attack Complex (MAC). The MAC assembles on bacterial membranes to form a pore, permitting disruption of bacterial membrane organization. Mutations in this gene cause component C9 deficiency.

ca9 Protein, carbonic anhydrase IX - Creative BioMart

Carbonic anhydrases (CAs) are a large family of zinc metalloenzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. They participate in a variety of biological processes, including respiration, calcification, acid-base balance, bone resorption, and the formation of aqueous humor, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, and gastric acid. They show extensive diversity in tissue distribution and in their subcellular localization. CA IX is a transmembrane protein and the only tumor-associated carbonic anhydrase isoenzyme known. It is expressed in all clear-cell renal cell carcinoma, but is not detected in normal kidney or most other normal tissues. It may be involved in cell proliferation and transformation. This gene was mapped to 17q21.2 by fluorescence in situ hybridization, however, radiation hybrid mapping localized it to 9p13-p12. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] CAIX is a transmembrane protein structurally consisting of a signal peptide, a proteoglycan-related region, a CA domain with a highly conserved active site, a transmembrane anchor and an intracytoplasmic tail, and is the only tumor-associated CA isoenzyme known so far. Compared with normal tissues, CAIX is overexpressed in a wide spectrum of tumor types and associated with increased metastasis and poor prognosis in aggressive carcinomas. CAIX expression is cell density dependent and has been shown to be strongly induced by hypoxia, accordingly facilitates adaptation of tumor cells to hypoxic conditions. CA9 is regarded as a new therapeutic target for CA9-derived carcinomas.

casp14 Protein, caspase 14, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase - Creative BioMart

Caspases are a family of cysteine proteases that are key mediators of programmed cell death or apoptosis.1 The precursor form of all caspases is composed of a prodomain and large and small catalytic subunits. The active forms of caspases are generated by several stimuli including ligand-receptor interactions, growth factor deprivation, and inhibitors of cellular functions. All known caspases require cleavage adjacent to aspartates to liberate one large and one small subunit, which associate into an a2b2 tetramer to form the active enzyme. Caspase-14 has a conserved active site pentapeptide, QACRG. However, no proteolytic or biological activities have been identified so far. Its high expression in embryonic tissues and limited expression in adult tissues suggests that it may have some role during ontogenesis.

casp3 Protein, caspase 3, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase - Creative BioMart

This gene encodes a protein which is a member of the cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase) family. Sequential activation of caspases plays a central role in the execution-phase of cell apoptosis. Caspases exist as inactive proenzymes which undergo proteolytic processing at conserved aspartic residues to produce two subunits, large and small, that dimerize to form the active enzyme. This protein cleaves and activates caspases 6, 7 and 9, and the protein itself is processed by caspases 8, 9 and 10. It is the predominant caspase involved in the cleavage of amyloid-beta 4A precursor protein, which is associated with neuronal death in Alzheimer's disease. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants that encode the same protein.
