This gene encodes a cell surface glycoprotein that regulates complement-mediated cell lysis and it is involved in lymphocyte signal transduction. This protein is a potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex whereby it binds complement C8 and/or C9 during the assembly of this complex thereby inhibiting the incorporation of multiple copies of C9 into the complex which is necessary for osmolytic pore formation. This protein also plays a role in signal transduction pathways in the activation of T cells. Mutations in this gene cause CD59 deficiency a disease resulting in hemolytic anemia and thrombosis and which causes cerebral infarction. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants which encode the same protein have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
