C-Reactive Protein cDNA Clone: Expression and Clone Vector / Plasmid

C-Reactive Protein cDNA / Gene Overview

CRP gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 1q23.2. The CRP gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, and frog.84 organisms have orthologs with human gene CRP.

C-Reactive Protein cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the pentaxin family. It is involved in several host defense related functions based on its ability to recognize foreign pathogens and damaged cells of the host and to initiate their elimination by interacting with humoral and cellular effector systems in the blood. Consequently, the level of this protein in plasma increases greatly during acute phase response to tissue injury, infection, or other inflammatory stimuli. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
