The creators of this web page intended to contribute to the achievement of the following goals:
- To help the collection of information on genetic alterations of the C1 inhibitor (C1INH) gene discovered in several laboratories with different motivations.
- To create a database where these data can be searched and compared according to several characteristics.
- To provide additional comprehensive help in the difficult decision that a new mutation may be disease causing or not.
- To give informative help for research efforts closely or more distantly related to C1INH genetics.
Human C1 inhibitor gene is located in the chromosome 11 (locus 11q11-q13.1) Mutation in the C1NH gene has been shown to cause hereditary angioedema. Alternative titles/symbols: C1I; C1INH; SERPING1.
The mutations/records in the database are maintained by their owners (laboratory which described it first) or the administrator of the database that can avoid wrong, massy, unrelevant information, which are controversial with recent papers.
If you want to submit new mutation as owner, send a short characteristic name for your laboratory (max. 16 characters) to Lajos Kalmár.

If You print the pages of the database, use the landscape orientation in the printer settings!
You can download the whole database in tab-limited text file (which can be opened with programs like Excel) from here.
Grafical Database is available for download in pdf format. It is updated in a week after a new submission.
Current version: 2005.2.0.
