Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
Complement component 3a (C3a) is present in the blood serum. C3a is generated over the course of complement activation where complement 3 (C3) convertases cleave C3 to C3a and C3b, which is further degraded into iC3b and C3dg/C3d. C3 is crucial in the induction of tolerance generated when an antigen is introduced into immunoprivileged sites and this is exploited by pathogens and cancer cells to evade the immune system by inhibiting complement activation. C3a mediates local inflammatory process. It induces the contraction of smooth muscle, increases vascular permeability and causes histamine release from mast cells and basophilic leukocytes. C3a is expressed at significantly higher levels in colorectal cancer.
