Technical Data
C7850-60H
CFB, ID (Complement Factor B, C3/C5 Convertase, Properdin Factor B, Glycine-rich beta Glycoprotein, GBG, PBF2, Complement factor B Ba fragment, Complement factor B Bb fragment, BFD, BF)
Description:
CFB encodes complement factor B, a component of the alternative pathway of complement activation. Factor B circulates in the blood as a single chain polypeptide. Upon activation of the alternative pathway, it is cleaved by complement factor D yielding the noncatalytic chain Ba and the catalytic subunit Bb. The active subunit Bb is a serine protease which associates with C3b to form the alternative pathway C3 convertase. Bb is involved in the proliferation of preactivated B lymphocytes, while Ba inhibits their proliferation.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
