Biological Activity

Complement inhibitor; binds C3 inhibiting proteolytic cleavage by C3 convertase (IC50 = 28 μM) and activation of classical and alternative complement pathways (IC50 values are 63 and 12 μM respectively). Prolongs graft survival and reduces hyperacute rejection of ex vivo pig kidneys perfused with human blood and inhibits in vivo heparin/protamine-induced complement activation in baboons.

Control Peptide also available.

We have tested whether C3b can enzymatically degrade Amyloid Precursor Protein
By Ahsan Habib on 01/06/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: CHO/APPwt

We wanted to investigate whether alpha -secretase like activity in human cord blood serum is mediated by complement C3b enzymatic activity. Compstatin (Cat. No. 2585) pre-incubated in different doses with whole as well as C3 depleted cord blood serum for 15 min at 37°C followed by treatment in CHO/APPwt cells with these premix complexes for 2 h.
