  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Complement C6 Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of C6 in Human plasma, serum, saliva, urine, milk, and cell culture supernatants.

    A Complement C6 specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a Complement C6 specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Conjugate is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of Complement C6 captured in plate.

  • PlatformMicroplate


  • FunctionConstituent of the membrane attack complex (MAC) that plays a key role in the innate and adaptive immune response by forming pores in the plasma membrane of target cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in C6 are the cause of complement component 6 deficiency (C6D) [MIM:612446]. A rare defect of the complement classical pathway associated with susceptibility to severe recurrent infections, predominantly by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Neisseria meningitidis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the complement C6/C7/C8/C9 family.
    Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
    Contains 2 Kazal-like domains.
    Contains 1 LDL-receptor class A domain.
    Contains 1 MACPF domain.
    Contains 2 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domains.
    Contains 3 TSP type-1 domains.
  • Post-translational
    All cysteine residues are assumed to be cross-linked to one another. Individual modules containing an even number of conserved cysteine residues are supposed to have disulfide linkages only within the same module.
