Abstract

Mannose binding lectin (MBL) is a calcium dependent lectin that causes predisposition to infections and autoimmune diseases. This study aimed to examine the presence of any association between MBL2 gene variants and vitiligo. Codon 54 (allele B) and codon 57(allele C) polymorphisms in t...read more

The double helix structure of DNA is important for its biological function. Discover the latest research on the Structure and Function of DNA here.

Complement Pathway: Mannose-Binding Lectin

The Mannose-Binding Lectin Complement Pathway is activated when mannose-binding lectin binds to mannose found on the surface of pathogens. Subsequent complement activation is similar to the classical complement pathway, but without the need for antigen-antibody complexes. Discover the latest research here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.
