Komplement-Komponente C4, A-Kette

Das C4A-Gen kodiert, wie das sich nur in wenigen Aminosäuren unterscheidende C4B-Gen, den Komplementfaktor C4. Partieller Mangel dieses Komplementfaktors kann zu Infektionsabwehrstörungen führen, während bei einer kompletten Deletion häufig Autoimmunerkrankungen wie Lupus erythmatodes und Typ 1 Diabetes beobachtet werden.
