M-Ficolin (Ficolin-1) is a non-serum protein that is expressed in leukocytes and lung. M-Ficolin precipitates with mannose-binding lectin (MBL)-associated serine proteases (MASP)-1 and MASP-2, indicating that M-Ficolin forms complexes with MASP-1 and MASP-2, recognizes certain types of bacteria and subsequently activates the lectin pathway.
