Mannose-binding protein is a component of the innate or natural immune system which binds to mannose residues on a variety of different microorganisms. When bound, this lectin will trigger the complement pathway resulting in opsonization. Mannose-binding protein is also an acute phase reactant produced by the liver. Patients who have abnormal levels of mannose-binding protein may have recurrent significant infections in the absence of abnormalities in the four major arms of the immune system. Abnormal mannose-binding protein concentrations have been found in patients with infectious disorders such as tuberculosis, hepatitis B, and in autoimmune disorders including recurrent spontaneous abortion and systemic lupus erythematosis.
