L-ficolin, ficolin, H-ficolin, Ficolin-2, Ficolin-3, Hakata antigen, FCN2
The product of this gene belongs to the ficolin family of proteins. This family is characterized by the presence of a leader peptide, a short N-terminal segment, followed by a collagen-like region, and a C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. This gene is predominantly expressed in the liver, and has been shown to have carbohydrate binding and opsonic activities. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Ficolin Gene Polymorphisms in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Host lung immunity is severely compromised during tropical pulmonary eosinophilia: role of lung eosinophils and macrophages.
Srivastava et al., Lucknow, India. In J Leukoc Biol, Nov 2015
Alveolar macrophages from tropical pulmonary eosinophilia mice displayed decreased phagocytosis, attenuated nitric oxide production, and reduced T-cell proliferation capacity, and FACS-sorted lung eosinophils from tropical pulmonary eosinophilia mice upregulated transcript levels of ficolin A and anti-apoptotic gene Bcl2, but proapoptotic genes Bim and Bax were downregulated.
