Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B
C3a is a 77 amino acid (aa) peptide comprising aa 672-748 of the C3 precursor protein. It is generated as a proteolytic byproduct of complement activation. C3a is an anaphylatoxin that is vasoactive and mediates inflammatory responses. It binds G-protein coupled C3a receptors in airways during asthmatic allergen challenges, triggering robust mast cell degranulation. Human C3a shows 69% aa identity with mouse, rat and guinea pig C3a.
Suitable for use in Western Blot and Direct ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Catalog #C7850-13M
