QuickView for C8B (gene)

Gene Symbol:
C8B Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
complement C8 beta chain
C82, complement component C8 beta chain, complement component 8 subunit beta, complement component 8, beta polypeptide
Genomic Location:
Chr 1: 57167471-57204276
This gene encodes one of the three subunits of the complement component 8 (C8) protein. C8 is composed of equimolar amounts of alpha, beta and gamma subunits, which are encoded by three separate genes. C8 is one component of the membrane attack complex, which mediates cell lysis, and it initiates membrane penetration of the complex. This protein me...
