Gene: FGA (fibrinogen alpha chain) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FGA
Name: fibrinogen alpha chain
Description: Exhibits structural molecule activity. Contributes to cell adhesion molecule binding activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including blood coagulation; negative regulation of apoptotic process; and positive regulation of secretion by cell. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane; fibrinogen complex; and platelet alpha granule. Implicated in congenital afibrinogenemia; familial visceral amyloidosis; and thrombophilia. Biomarker of Crohn's disease; keratoconus; precursor lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia; and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: Fib2; fibrinogen, A alpha polypeptide; fibrinogen, alpha polypeptide; MGC119422; MGC119423; MGC119425
