Molecular and biological characterization of rabbit mannan-binding protein.

Abstract

Mannan-binding protein (MBP) is a member of the collectin family of protein. There are two types of MBP, MBP-A and MBP-C, which were found in rodent (rats and mice), rhesus monkey, and cynomolgus monkey, while chimpanzee and human have only one MBP. It was considered that the loss of one MBP gene occurred during hominoid evolution. In this article two… (More)
