What is CD55?

CD55 which is also known as complement decay – accelerating factor or DAF, is a protein found in humans usually encoded by CD55 gene. DFA is of 70Kda in length and remains bounded to cell membrane through a Glycophosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. This protein helps in proper regulation of complement system also known as complement cascade. Complement system is an essential part of our immune system which enables the phagocytes or antibodies in clearing infected cells and microbes in a body. Generally, this is associated with innate immune system which don’t get changed in a lifetime but can be recruited by antibodies produced by adaptive immune system.

What are the diseases associated with CD55?

Beyond the role of CD55 or DAF in complement system, it is known to act as inhibitor of complement system. But on the other hand it is associated with many diseases; studies have shown that increased expression of CD55 is correlated with colorectal and breast cancer. It’s expression can also lead to the onset of gastric, ovarian, prostate, cervical cancer, etc. In the similar way, CD55 can act as a receptor for various microorganisms and enteroviruses which ultimately promotes the chances of infections. According to a research, CD55 is one of the important host for Plasmodium flaciparum. Other than this, deficiency of CD55 can indicate onset of CHAPLE’S syndrome. Thus further causes glomerular diseases like Edema, hypoalbuminemia and hypogammaglobulinemia.
