The purpose of this study was to evaluate C4A and C4B in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia in relation to CYP21A2 genotype and psychiatric and autoimmune comorbidity. We determined the copy numbers of C4A and C4B in 145 patients with CAH .No association was found between C4 copy number and autoimmune disease.
Low C4 in systemic lupus erythematosus patients is due to consumption rather than deficient synthesis related to lower C4A & B gene copy numbers.
Report strong association of systemic lupus erythematosus in individuals with low copy numbers of C4 and in particular in patients with complete deficiency of C4A.
An increase in serum C4, as wall as a decrease in C3, was an important outcome determinant for patients with immunoglobulin A nephropathy.
for the first time, a complete overview of C4 in SLE from genetic variation to binding capacity using a novel test. As this test detects crossing over of Rodgers and Chido antigens, it will allow for more accurate measurement of C4 in future studies.
The study re-evaluates low-resolution crystal structures of C4 via interactive molecular-dynamics flexible fitting. In terms of biology, the results provide a better structural framework for understanding the pivotal function of the C4 protein within the complement system.
An elevated number of C4 genes was observed in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients as compared with healthy controls. The presence of high C4A and C4B copy numbers in AD patients could explain the increased C4 protein expression observed in AD patients, thus highlighting a possible role for C4A and C4B copy number variations in the risk of developing AD.
This study shows that the C4c/C4 ratio seems to be a better diagnostic measure than total antigenic C4 alone. Our findings underline that screening with total antigenic C4 implies a risk of overlooking C1-INH-HAE patients.
In comparison with C4-intact patients, C4-deficient patients had a different clinical/serologic lupus-like phenotype and lacked the lupus interferon signature.
C4 copy number variations and deficiency of C4A both play an important role in the risk and manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus in East Asian and European populations
Complement C4A deficiency (gene copy number <=1) was identified as a risk factor in a case-control study of juvenile dermatomyositis, particularly when subjects concurrently carried the HLA-DRB1*0301 allele.
Solution Structures of Complement C2 and Its C4 Complexes Propose Pathway-specific Mechanisms for Control and Activation of the Complement Proconvertases.
Coronary atherosclerosis is distinguished by serum C4 complement up-regulation and ceruloplasmin down-regulation.
find strong statistical significance for association of increased copy number of C4A (OR 0.81 (0.73; 0.89);P = 4.4 x 10(-5)), with the effect most pronounced in individuals over 78 years (OR 0.67 (0.55; 0.81)) and females

important role of complement C4a in inhibiting the HBV DNA secretion in chronic hepatitis b
C4A and C4B gene copy numbers are stronger risk factors for juvenile-onset than for adult-onset systemic lupus erythematosus.
Increased age, rs2857009 single nucleotide polymorphism of complement component C4 and hepatitis C virus genotype were associated with disease progression.
The C4A-complete transcript is the main transcript under normal physiological conditions, while C4A-AS is augmented when mastitis develops.

This gene encodes the acidic form of complement factor 4, part of the classical activation pathway. The protein is expressed as a single chain precursor which is proteolytically cleaved into a trimer of alpha, beta, and gamma chains prior to secretion. The trimer provides a surface for interaction between the antigen-antibody complex and other complement components. The alpha chain may be cleaved to release C4 anaphylatoxin, a mediator of local inflammation. Deficiency of this protein is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and type I diabetes mellitus. This gene localizes to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class III region on chromosome 6. Varying haplotypes of this gene cluster exist, such that individuals may have 1, 2, or 3 copies of this gene. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
