Mannose binding lectin protein deficiency

Common Name(s)

Mannose binding lectin protein deficiency, Mannose-binding protein deficiency

Mannose-binding lectin protein (MBL) deficiency is a complement component deficiency that alters the function of the body's immune system. This condition usually causes frequent and sometimes severe infections in infants and young children.  This deficiency can occur as a result of one or more variations in the MBL2 gene, which codes for the MBL protein. A lack of this protein can cause this condition, but is likely further influenced by other genetic and environmental factors.
