OMIA:000155-10141 : C3 deficiency in Cavia porcellus
In other species: dog , rabbit
Categories: Immune system phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 613779 (trait) , 120700 (gene)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Considered a defect: yes
Key variant known: no
Cross-species summary: Complement component 3 consists of two chains, alpha and beta, linked covalently by disulphide bonds. In humans and mice (and therefore presumably in all mammals), the two chains are encoded by a single gene (the C3 gene).
Molecular basis: Despite the title of their paper, Auerbach et al. (1990) did not report the molecular basis of C3 deficiency in guinea pigs.
Note: the references are listed in reverse chronological order (from the most recent year to the earliest year), and alphabetically by first author within a year.
