The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 90 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 76 kDa).
C1s B chain is a serine protease that combines with C1q and C1s to form C1, the first component of the classical pathway of the complement system. C1r activates C1s so that it can, in turn, activate C2 and C4.
Involvement in disease
Defects in C1S are the cause of complement component C1s deficiency (C1SD) [MIM:613783]. A rare defect resulting in C1 deficiency and impaired activation of the complement classical pathway. C1 deficiency generally leads to severe immune complex disease with features of systemic lupus erythematosus and glomerulonephritis.
The Complement C1s subcomponent protein contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted. Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.
