C3 Protein

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Purified human complement component C3. The third component of complement is a centrally important constituent of both the alternative and classical pathways. Upon secretion, pro-C3 undergoes a site specific proteolytic cleavage to yield circulating C3, a protein containing two disulfide bonded subunits (Alpha 115 kD and Beta 75 kD). The concentration of C3 in serum is approximately 1.25 +/– 0.52 mg/mL.

All Quidel complement components are tested for functional activity in a standard lytic or applicable functional assay and for biochemical purity by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for lot specific information on functional titer.

Quidel's purified human complement components are useful in a wide variety of immunochemical and research applications. For assistance with a specific protocol, please contact Quidel Technical Support.
