Background: MFAP3

Microfibril-associated glycoprotein 3 (MFAP3), is a member of the MFAP family which play a role in microfibril assembly, elastinogenesis, and tissue homeostasis. The family members were identified as potential components of fibrillin-containing microfibrils, but they do not share structural similarities (1). MFAP3 is found in ocular zonules. Human MFAP3 is a serine-rich acidic protein located in zonular fibers and consists of an extracellular domain (ECD) containing one Ig-like C2-type domain, a single transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic domain. Within the ECD, mature human MFAP3 shares 74% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat MFAP3. Among MFAP3-related pathways are degradation of the extracellular matrix and elastic fiber formation. MFAP is a candidate gene for heritable diseases affecting microfibrils (2).
