Complement C5b Mouse anti-Human, Clone: 568, Invitrogen
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen MA140163
MA1-40163 detects C5/C5b from human samples. MA1-40163 has been successfully used in ELISA and Western blot applications. The MA1-40163 immunogen is an epitope on C5/C5b.The protein encoded by this gene is the fifth component of complement, which plays an important role in inflammatory and cell killing processes. This protein is comprised of alpha and beta polypeptide chains that are linked by a disulfide bridge. An activation peptide, C5a, which is an anaphylatoxin that possesses potent spasmogenic and chemotactic activity, is derived from the alpha polypeptide via cleavage with a convertase. The C5b macromolecular cleavage product can form a complex with the C6 complement component, and this complex is the basis for formation of the membrane attack complex, which includes additional complement components. Mutations in this gene cause complement component 5 deficiency, a disease where patients show a propensity for severe recurrent infections. Defects in this gene have also been linked to a susceptibility to liver fibrosis and to rheumatoid arthritis.
