Gene Information

PTX4 belongs to the pentraxin (PTX) superfamily of multifunctional conserved proteins. Pentraxins are characterized by a cyclic multimeric structure and a conserved C-terminal pentraxin domain of approximately 200 amino acids. All pentraxins have a conserved 8-amino acid sequence HxCxS/TWxS in which x is any amino acid within their pentraxin domain. Pentraxins are divided into short proteins such as C-reactive protein (CRP; MIM 123260) and serum amyloid P protein (APCS; MIM 104770) and long proteins such as PTX3 (MIM 602492) and PTX4. Some PTXs are part of the humoral arm of innate immunity and behave as functional ancestors of antibodies by mediating agglutination complement activation and opsonization (summary by Martinez de la Torre et al. 2010 [PubMed 20357257]).[supplied by OMIM Jun 2010]
