The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 51 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
A positive regulator of the alternate pathway of complement. It binds to and stabilizes the C3- and C5-convertase enzyme complexes.
Involvement in disease
Defects in CFP are the cause of properdin deficiency (PFD) [MIM:312060]. PFD results in higher susceptibility to bacterial infections; especially to meningococcal infections. Three phenotypes have been reported: complete deficiency (type I), incomplete deficiency (type II), and dysfunction of properdin (type III).
