Useful For

Mannan-binding lectin (MBL) is an acute-phase, carbohydrate-binding serum protein secreted by the liver that plays a central role in the innate immune system. Structurally MBL is a C1q-like molecule that in association with MBL associated serine proteases (MASPs) binds to surface carbohydrates on bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa making them accessible for phagocytosis through MBL receptors or by activating the complement cascade via the recently elucidated MBL or lectin pathway
