MBS135930 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip-or-full plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Mouse Complement C3, ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing C3. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS135930 kit is based on C3 antibody-C3 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect C3 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, C3. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Intended Uses: This mouse complement component 3 (C3) total antigen assay is intended for the quantitative determination of total C3 antigen in mouse plasma, serum, and cell culture samp,les. For research use only.

Background: Complement C3, the most abundant serum complement component, is a disulfide-linked 185kDa 1,637 amino acid glycoprotein which supports the classical, alternative, and lectin pathways of complement activation [1]. C3 is proteolytically activated by C3- convertase to the anaphylatoxin C3a and the opsonizing agent C3b [2]. Serum concentrations of C3 are increased during acute and chronic inflammation suc~ as rheumatoid arthritis, and are decreased due to increased consumption or autoimmune disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus [3].

NCBI Summary for C3
This gene encodes complement protein C3 which plays a central role in the classical, alternative and lectin activation pathways of the complement system. The encoded preproprotein undergoes a multi-step processing to generate various functional peptides. Mice deficient in the encoded protein fail to clear bacteria from the blood stream upon infection, display diminished airway hyperresponsiveness and lung eosinophilia upon allergen-induced pulmonary allergy, and develop severe lung injury after deposition of IgG immune complexes. Deficiency of the homolog of the encoded protein in humans was found to be associated with increased susceptibility to infections, age-related macular degeneration, and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome.

UniProt Comments for C3
C3: C3 plays a central role in the activation of the complement system. Its processing by C3 convertase is the central reaction in both classical and alternative complement pathways. After activation C3b can bind covalently, via its reactive thioester, to cell surface carbohydrates or immune aggregates. Defects in C3 are the cause of complement component 3 deficiency (C3D). A rare defect of the complement classical pathway. Patients develop recurrent, severe, pyogenic infections because of ineffective opsonization of pathogens. Some patients may also develop autoimmune disorders, such as arthralgia and vasculitic rashes, lupus-like syndrome and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Genetic variation in C3 is associated with susceptibility to age-related macular degeneration type 9 (ARMD9). ARMD is a multifactorial eye disease and the most common cause of irreversible vision loss in the developed world. In most patients, the disease is manifest as ophthalmoscopically visible yellowish accumulations of protein and lipid that lie beneath the retinal pigment epithelium and within an elastin- containing structure known as Bruch membrane. Defects in C3 are a cause of susceptibility to hemolytic uremic syndrome atypical type 5 (AHUS5). An atypical form of hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is a complex genetic disease characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure and absence of episodes of enterocolitis and diarrhea. In contrast to typical hemolytic uremic syndrome, atypical forms have a poorer prognosis, with higher death rates and frequent progression to end-stage renal disease. Susceptibility to the development of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome can be conferred by mutations in various components of or regulatory factors in the complement cascade system. Other genes may play a role in modifying the phenotype. Increased levels of C3 and its cleavage product ASP, are associated with obesity, diabetes and coronary heart disease. Short-term endurance training reduces baseline ASP levels and subsequently fat storage.
