Description

Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a pattern recognition molecule of the innate immune system. It belongs to the collectin family of proteins in which lectin (tion) domains are found in association with collagenous structures.

Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a pattern recognition molecule of the innate immune system. In man, these proteins include serum MBL, lung surfactant protein A (SP-A) and lung surfactant protein D (SP-D). MBL binds to a range of sugars including ne, mannose,, fucose and glucose.

Mannose-binding lectin deficiency is a condition that affects the immune system. People with this condition have low levels (deficiency) of an immune system protein called mannose-binding lectin in their blood. Whether this deficiency makes affected individuals prone to recurrent infections is not clear. People with mannose-binding lectin deficiency can develop infections of the upper respiratory tract and other body systems. Individuals with this condition may also contract more serious infections such as pneumonia and meningitis

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Vitiligo is an auto immune disease in which immune system with unknown reasons attacks self melanocytes which are pigment producing cells determining the color of the skin. In patient with Vitiligo. due to the absent of melonocytes the skin has a white color in some part of the body.

Mannose-binding lectin (MBL), also called mannan-binding lectin or mannan-binding protein (MBP), is a lectin that is instrumental in innate immunity as an opsonin and via the lectin pathway. MBL has an oligomeric structure (400-700 kDa), built of subunits that contain three presumably identical peptide chains of about 30 kDa each.

Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is a plasma protein with a role in the innate immune system. This text summarises the understanding of human MBL biology and introduces the general aspects of the structure, function and genetics of MBL, as well as an analysis of the role of MBL in the predisposition to clinically relevant diseases.
