Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-C5 / C5a antibody (ab46168)
This peptide is derived specifically from the alpha / alpha' chain of C5, which forms part of C5b
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Complement component 5
RelevanceC5 is synthesised in the liver as a single polypeptide chain. Before secretion the molecule is glycosylated and secreted into plasma as a 190kDa glycoprotein consisting of a disulphide linked alpha-chain (115kDa) and beta-chain (75kDa).
C5 precursor is first processed by the removal of 4 basic residues, forming two chains, beta and alpha, linked by a disulfide bond. C5 convertase activates C5 by cleaving the alpha chain, releasing C5a anaphylatoxin and generating C5b (beta chain + alpha' chain).
