GeneDescription This gene encodes the soluble mannose-binding lectin or mannose-binding protein found in serum. The protein encoded belongs to the collectin family and is an important element in the innate immune system. The protein recognizes mannose and N-acetylglucosamine on many microorganisms, and is capable of activating the classical complement pathway. Deficiencies of this gene have been associated with susceptibility to autoimmune and infectious diseases.
GeneFunction Heisenberg et al. (1996) identified four zebrafish mutants with defects in forebrain induction and patterning during embryogenesis. The four mutants defined three genes: masterblind (mbl), silberblick (slb), and knollnase (kas). They found that in mbl embryos, the anterior forebrain acquired posterior forebrain characteristics: anterior structures such as the eyes, olfactory placodes and the telencephalon were missing, whereas the epiphysis located in the posterior forebrain was expanded. Their analysis of the mutant phenotypes indicated that they have identified genes essential for the specification of the anterior forebrain (mbl), positioning of the eyes (slb) and differentiation of the roof plate (kas). Heisenberg et al. (1996) also listed mutants showing alterations in the size of the eyes and abnormal differentiation of the lenses.Masai et al. (1997) showed that mbl is required to prevent the expression of flh (required for neurogenesis to proceed in the epiphysis) in dorsal forebrain cells rostral to the epiphysis. Sanders et al. (2003) examined the contribution of cell death to the morphologic defects of mbl by blocking cell death by using zVADfmk, a known caspase inhibitor. They found that this treatment partially rescued the expanded jaw defect and that this rescue was dependent on the genetic background. Therefore, the mbl mutant phenotypes resulted from genetic background effects that altered the pattern of programmed cell death early in development.Jackson et al. (2007) described a novel extension of the Genomic Matching Technique (GMT) that defined haplotypes of the mannose binding lectin (MBL) region in Zebrafish. They reported that MBL activated the lectin pathway of the complement system and stimulated the development of the complement cascade and the Membrane Attack Complex. They reported multiple copies of MBL-like genes in D. rerio, with up to three copies tightly linked within a cluster spanning approximately 15 kb on chromosome 2. Their Genomic analysis suggested that duplication, retroviral insertion and possibly gene mutation and/or deletion had been key factors in the evolution of this cluster. They demonstrated polymorphism within a critical component of the teleost innate immune system. Their investigations defined other important haplotypes and transferred the knowledge to other finfish species, hence enabling selection of broodstock for the aquaculture industry.Wang et al. (2008) demonstrated the ontogenic and differential expression of complement key component genes (C3, C1r/s, C4, C6, Bf, MBL and MASP) of the classical pathway (CP), alternative pathway (AP), lectin pathway (LP) and lytic pathway, and their responses to challenge with LPS during development. All components, except C6, showed a similar trend of increasing expression after hatching. They found that the expression of MBL mRNA was up-regulated by LPS challenge after 18 days post fertilization. They further suggested that the complement operating via the AP was already competent by responding to challenge with LPS in the hatched larvae of Danio rerio.

DisordersAndMutations The zebrafish masterblind (mbl) mutant is characterized by the lack of olfactory placodes and optic vesicles, reduced telencephalon, an expanded epiphysis (Heisenberg et al. [1996] Development 123:191-203), and enlarged jaw. In the mutant, dlx3, showed reduced expression in the olfactory placode field, but normal expression in the developing ear.
