3E7slashC3b_PE_C3bslashiC3b_Antibody_1_110916
Human peripheral blood cells were opsonized with complement by incubation with purified anti-CD3 (top) or purified isotype control (bottom) and then incubated with fresh human serum (as a source of complement), followed by staining with C3b/iC3b (clone 3E7/C3b) PE (filled histogram) or mouse IgG1, κ PE isotype control (open histogram). Data shown was gated in the lymphocyte population.

Description

Complement C3 is a 185 kD glycoprotein composed of two chains linked by a disulfide bond. It is the fourth complement component to react in the classical pathway. It is also a key protein in both the alternative and the lectin complement activation pathways. C3b is proteolytically generated from C3 by cleavage of the C3a-C3b peptide bond in the protein by C3 convertase. C3b can bind covalently, via its reactive thioester, to cell surface carbohydrates or immune aggregates. Macrophages and neutrophils recognize C3b by the complement receptor 1 (CR1, CD35). Opsonization of target surfaces with C3b is central to all three pathways of complement activation. The proteolytically inactive forms of C3b, iC3b, are generated by cleavage of the alpha chain at one or two positions by factor I in the presence of co-factors, such as factor H.  A fragment of C3b, C3f, with a molecular weight of approximately 2 kD is generated when C3b is cleaved at two positions by factor I. Although iC3b is less active than C3b, iC3b’s interactions with lymphoid and phagocytic cells via CR2 (CD21) and CR3 (CD11b/CD18) can expand target-specific B and T cells. iC3b can be cleaved to form C3c and C3dg.

Antigen Details

Structure
C3b is a glycosylated, 176 kD protein that is formed by the cleavage of C3. iC3b is proteolytically derived from C3b and exists as a mixture of 176 and 174 kD proteins.
Distribution

Extracellular fluid, plasma membrane, and serum.

Function
C3b is involved in all three complement pathways and is essential for effective complement activation and presentation of antigens to cells of the adaptive immune system. iC3b is less active than C3b, but the target-bound protein can expand target-specific B-cell and T-cell populations by interacting with lymphoid and phagocytic cells.
Interaction
C3b can bind covalently, via its reactive thioester, to cell surface carbohydrates or immune aggregates. Macrophages and neutrophils have receptors, CR1 (CD35), for C3b. iC3b can also function as opsonin, but it binds through CR2 and CR3.
Ligand/Receptor
C3b can bind to Factor B, Factor P, Factor H, Factor I, C5, DAF (CD55), MCP (CD46), and CR1 (CD35). iC3b can interact with CR2 (CD21), and CR3 (CD11b/CD18).
