C1QComplement component C1q domain.
|SMART accession number:||SM00110|
|Description:||Globular domain found in many collagens and eponymously in complement C1q. When part of full length proteins these domains form a 'bouquet' due to the multimerization of heterotrimers. The C1q fold is similar to that of tumour necrosis factor.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR001073):|
This entry represents the C-terminal domain of C1q. C1q is a subunit of the C1 enzyme complex that activates the serum complement system. C1q comprises 6 A, 6 B and 6 C chains. These share the same topology, each possessing a small, globular N-terminal domain, a collagen-like Gly/Pro-rich central region, and a conserved C-terminal region, the C1q domain [(PUBMED:1706597)]. The C1q protein is produced in collagen-producing cells and shows sequence and structural similarity to collagens VIII and X [(PUBMED:2591537), (PUBMED:2019595)]. This domain is also found in multimerin and EMILIN proteins.
