Neural stem cell derived neuronal survival protein
Neural stem cell-derived neuronal survival protein
The MCFD2-LMAN1 complex forms a specific cargo receptor for the ER-to-Golgi transport of selected proteins. Plays a role in the secretion of coagulation factors.
Involvement in disease
Defects in MCFD2 are a cause of factor V and factor VIII combined deficiency type 2 (F5F8D2) [MIM:613625]; also known as multiple coagulation factor deficiency 2 (MCFD2). F5F8D2 is a blood coagulation disorder characterized by bleeding symptoms similar to those in hemophilia or parahemophilia, that are caused by single deficiency of FV or FVIII, respectively. The most common symptoms are epistaxis, menorrhagia, and excessive bleeding during or after trauma. Plasma levels of coagulation factors V and VIII are in the range of 5 to 30% of normal.
Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
Essentially unstructured in the absence of calcium ions. Requires calcium ions for folding.
