STRINGSTRING
CFB protein (Bos taurus) - STRING interaction network
"CFB" - Complement factor B in Bos taurus
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 (761 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 (By similarity) (1661 aa)
     
  0.985
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 (851 aa)
     
  0.983
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 (By similarity) (259 aa)
     
  0.979
C4A
Complement C4; 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 (By similarity) (1741 aa)
     
  0.974
C5
Complement C5a anaphylatoxin; Derived from proteolytic degradation of complement C5, C5 anaphylatoxin is a mediator of local inflammatory process. Binding to the receptor C5AR1 induces a variety of responses including intracellular calcium release, contraction of smooth muscle, increased vascular permeability, and histamine release from mast cells and basophilic leukocytes. C5a is also a potent chemokine which stimulates the locomotion of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and directs their migration toward sites of inflammation (1677 aa)

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 (By similarity); Belongs to the peptidase S1 family (787 aa)
