Overview

  • Product nameAnti-Factor B antibody [9B8]
    See all Factor B primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [9B8] to Factor B
  • Specificityab17932 is specific for the Bb fragment of human factor B. In Western blotting, after SDS-PAGE, this antibody reacts with the Bb fragment of factor B in non-reduced form only. Antibody binding abolishes the formation of C3bBb complexes.

Target

  • FunctionFactor B which is part of the alternate pathway of the complement system is cleaved by factor D into 2 fragments: Ba and Bb. Bb, a serine protease, then combines with complement factor 3b to generate the C3 or C5 convertase. It has also been implicated in proliferation and differentiation of preactivated B-lymphocytes, rapid spreading of peripheral blood monocytes, stimulation of lymphocyte blastogenesis and lysis of erythrocytes. Ba inhibits the proliferation of preactivated B-lymphocytes.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CFB are a cause of susceptibility to hemolytic uremic syndrome atypical type 4 (AHUS4) [MIM:612924]. 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. Note=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.
