STRINGSTRING
Cfb protein (mouse) - STRING interaction network
"Cfb" - Complement factor B in Mus musculus
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

CfbComplement factor B; Factor B which is part of the alternate pathway of the complement system is cleaved by factor D into 2 fragments- Ba and Bb. Bb, a serine protease, then combines with complement factor 3b to generate the C3 or C5 convertase; Belongs to the peptidase S1 family (763 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
C3
Complement C3; C3 plays a central role in the activation of the complement system. Its processing by C3 convertase is the central reaction in both classical and alternative complement pathways. After activation C3b can bind covalently, via its reactive thioester, to cell surface carbohydrates or immune aggregates (1663 aa)
     
  0.992
Cfd
Complement factor D; Factor D cleaves factor B when the latter is complexed with factor C3b, activating the C3bbb complex, which then becomes the C3 convertase of the alternate pathway. Its function is homologous to that of C1s in the classical pathway (259 aa)
     
  0.990
Cfh
Complement factor H; Factor H functions as a cofactor in the inactivation of C3b by factor I and also increases the rate of dissociation of the C3bBb complex (C3 convertase) and the (C3b)NBB complex (C5 convertase) in the alternative complement pathway (1252 aa)
     
  0.986
C4b
Complement C4-B; Non-enzymatic component of C3 and C5 convertases and thus essential for the propagation of the classical complement pathway. Covalently binds to immunoglobulins and immune complexes and enhances the solubilization of immune aggregates and the clearance of IC through CR1 on erythrocytes. Catalyzes the transacylation of the thioester carbonyl group to form ester bonds with carbohydrate antigens (By similarity) (1738 aa)
     
  0.984
Hc
Complement C5; Activation of C5 by a C5 convertase initiates the spontaneous assembly of the late complement components, C5-C9, into the membrane attack complex. C5b has a transient binding site for C6. The C5b-C6 complex is the foundation upon which the lytic complex is assembled (1680 aa)
     
  0.980
Cfhr2
Complement factor H-related 2 (332 aa)
     
  0.977
Gm4788
Predicted gene 4788 (879 aa)
     
  0.926
C2
Complement C2; Component C2 which is part of the classical pathway of the complement system is cleaved by activated factor C1 into two fragments- C2b and C2a. C2a, a serine protease, then combines with complement factor C4b to generate the C3 or C5 convertase; Belongs to the peptidase S1 family (760 aa)
     
 
0.926
Cd55
Complement decay-accelerating factor, GPI-anchored; This protein recognizes C4b and C3b fragments that condense with cell-surface hydroxyl or amino groups when nascent C4b and C3b are locally generated during C4 and c3 activation. Interaction of daf with cell-associated C4b and C3b polypeptides interferes with their ability to catalyze the conversion of C2 and factor B to enzymatically active C2a and Bb and thereby prevents the formation of C4b2a and C3bBb, the amplification convertases of the complement cascade. Inhibits complement activation by destabilizing and preventing the format [...] (390 aa)

Cfp
Properdin; A positive regulator of the alternate pathway of complement. It binds to and stabilizes the C3- and C5-convertase enzyme complexes (464 aa)
