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.
The entire kit may be stored at -20°C for long term storage before reconstitution - Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.

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.
modificationsAll 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.
