Ficolin-2, which was initially identified as L-ficolin, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FCN2 gene.

The product of this gene belongs to the ficolin family of proteins. This family is characterized by the presence of a leader peptide, a short N-terminal segment, after the collagen-like region and C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. This gene is expressed primarily in the liver and been shown to have carbohydrate binding and opsonic activities. Alternative spliced transcripts variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
