The resultant C5b-8-poly-C9 is the "membrane attack complex" or MAC.
A 80-kDa subcomponent of complement C1, existing as a SERINE PROTEASE proenzyme in the intact complement C1 complex. When COMPLEMENT C1Q is bound to antibodies, the changed tertiary structure causes autolytic activation of complement C1r which is cleaved into two chains, A (heavy) and B (light, the serine protease), connected by disulfide bonds.

A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Combined genetic deficiency of C6 and C7 in man. (1/83)

By routine screening of sera, a subject was discovered who showed a sub-total deficiency of C6 and C7. No clinical disease was associated with this deficiency which was transmitted through the subject's family as a single genetic characteristic, the C6 deficiency being associated with a silent allele at the structural locus. The propositus was found to have low quantities of an abnormal C6 which was both antigenically deficient and smaller in size than normal C6 (110,000 daltons compared with 140,000 daltons) and small quantities of apparently normal C7. It is concluded that the most likely explanation for this defect is that the subject has a structural mutation in his C6 gene which produces hyopsynthesis not only of C6 but also of the closely linked gene for C7. These findings suggest the possibility that C6 and C7 may function as a single genetic unit and that the primary transcript copied from the genome includes information for both proteins.  (+info)

In vitro and in vivo responses of murine granulocytes to human complement-derived, haemolytically inactive C5b67 (iC5b67). (2/83)

Haemolytically inactive C5b67 (iC5b67), which was made from purified human components and decayed to a haemolytically inactive form, was evaluated as an agonist for murine leucocytes both in vitro and in vivo. In an in vitro assay, iC5b67 stimulated chemotaxis for both neutrophils purified from mouse bone marrow and splenic eosinophils of IL-5 transgenic mice. The stimulation was dose-dependent, with high dose inhibition. As with human neutrophils, iC5b67 also failed to up-regulate CR3 (CD11b/CD18) expression and to stimulate superoxide generation in murine bone marrow neutrophils, in vitro. In vivo, iC5b67 elicited an inflammatory response in a mouse model of pleuritis. A marked infiltration of neutrophils, which peaked at 4 h, was followed by an infiltration of eosinophils and mononuclear leucocytes. This inflammatory response was dose- and time-dependent. However, the protein concentration in the pleural wash fluid did not increase, indicating that iC5b67 did not induce a capillary leak. Although the infiltration of neutrophils could not be reproduced by pure C7 or human serum albumin (HSA), C5b6 did induce an influx of neutrophils. We were able to document the existence of C7, both antigenically and functionally, in pleural washes of normal mice, making it likely that the activity of C5b6 resulted from the in situ formation of C5b67 and iC5b67. The mouse model of pleuritis promises to be a useful in vivo system in which to evaluate the pro- and anti-inflammatory effects of iC5b67 that have been noted in vitro.  (+info)

On the mechanism of cytolysis by complement: evidence on insertion of C5b and C7 subunits of the C5b,6,7 complex into phospholipid bilayers of erythrocyte membranes. (3/83)

The doughnut hypothesis of cytolysis by complement [Mayer, M. M. (1972) Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. USA 69, 2954-2958] describes an annular structure made up of C5b-9 (complement factors C5b, C6, C7, C8, and C9) which becomes inserted in the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane, thus creating a hole. We now present initial explorations of this hypothesis. EAC1-6 and EAC1-7 (sheep erythrocytes carrying rabbit antibody and complement factors C1 through C6 or C1 through C7, respectively), prepared with either 125I-C3 or 125I-C5 were incubated with trypsin and the release of bound 125I was measured. In the case of 125I-C3, all of the radioactivity was released by trypsin from both intermediates. With 125I-C5, trypsin released all of the 125I from EAC1-6, but only 40-55% from EAC1-7. Possible reasons for resistance of the C5b subunit in EAC1-7 to tryptic digestion are discussed; in terms of the doughnut hypothesis it would be due to shielding by lipid molecules as a consequence of insertion into the lipid bilayer. In accord with this interpretation we have also found that C5b in EAC1-7, but not in EAC1-6, resists elution by 0.3 M NaC1. Similarly, we have found that 125I-C7 in EAC1-7 resists stripping by trypsin. Hence, we now propose the hypothesis that hydrophobic polypeptide chains from the C5b and the C7 subunits of C5b,6,7 complex become inserted in the phospholipid bilayer and that subsequent reactions with C8 and C9 open a channel across the membrane.  (+info)

Increased ion permeability of planar lipid bilayer membranes after treatment with the C5b-9 cytolytic attack mechanism of complement. (4/83)

The ion permeability of planar lipid bilayers, as measured electrically, was found to increase modestly upon treatment with purified complement complex C5b,6 and complement components C7 and C8. The subsequent addition C9 greatly amplified this change. No permeability changes occurred when components were added individually to the membrane, or when they were used in paired combinations, or when C5b, C7, C8, and C9 were admixed prior to addition. Thus, there is a significant parallel between the permeability changes induced in the model membrane and damage produced in biological membranes by the C5b-9 complement attack sequence. The efficiency of membrane action by C5b-9 was critically dependent on the order in whcih components were added to the membrane. There were also differences in the electrical properties of membranes treated with C5b-8 and C5b-9, though in both cases the enhanced bilayer permeability is best attributed to the formation of trans-membrane channels. Collectively, the data are consistent with the hypothesis that the mechanism of membrane action by complement involves the production of a stable channel across the lipid bilayer, resulting in cell death by colloid-osmotic lysis.  (+info)

Isolation, characterization, and cloning of porcine complement component C7. (5/83)

Activation of the complement system through the classical, alternative, or lectin pathway results in the formation of the terminal complement complex. C7 plays an integral role in the assembly of this complex with target cell membranes. To date, only human C7 has been cloned and characterized; thus, in this study, we characterized the porcine complement component C7. Porcine C7 was isolated by affinity chromatography as a single glycoprotein with an approximate molecular mass of 90 kDa and 100 kDa under reducing and nonreducing conditions, respectively. The full-length porcine C7 cDNA was isolated, and the predicted amino acid sequence exhibited 80% identity with human C7 with conservation of the cysteine backbone and two putative N-linked glycosylation sites. Porcine C7 mRNA expression was detected in all tissues investigated, except polymorphonuclear and mononuclear leukocytes. Addition of purified porcine C7 restored the hemolytic activity of C7-depleted human sera in a dose-dependent manner. A functionally inhibitory mAb against porcine C7 attenuated the hemolytic activity of human, rabbit, or rat sera, suggesting an important conserved C7 epitope among species. These data demonstrate that porcine and human C7 are highly conserved, sharing structural and functional characteristics.  (+info)

The endothelium is an extrahepatic site of synthesis of the seventh component of the complement system. (6/83)

The level of the terminal complement components secreted by human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) was measured by a sensitive ELISA which allows the detection of 30-50 pg/ml of these components. C7 was the only terminal component detected in measurable amounts in the cell supernatant. The mean value was 11 ng/106 cells at 96 h and was slightly higher than that of C3 (9 ng/106 cells). HUVEC and serum C7 analysed by SDS-PAGE and immunoblot exhibited the same electrophoretic mobility. A proportion of C7 secreted by HUVEC was incorporated into the terminal complement complex (TCC) assembled spontaneously in the supernatant of cells cultured in C7-deficient human serum, and was not detected by the standard ELISA for C7 measurement. By adding the amount of C7 present in the TCC to that of free C7, the total amount of the component released by HUVEC was calculated to be approximately 35 ng/106 cells. Further TCC was produced following complement activation of the cell supernatant through the alternative pathway. Synthesis of C7 by HUVEC was confirmed by inhibition experiments in the presence of cycloheximide and by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis of C7 mRNA expression. Addition of IL-1alpha and tumour necrosis factor-alpha to the cell culture stimulated the secretion of C3, but had no effect on the synthesis of C7. By contrast, interferon-gamma had only a marginal effect on the production of C3, but markedly down-regulated the synthesis of C7 as assessed both by ELISA and RT-PCR.  (+info)

Hereditary deficiency of the seventh component of complement. (7/83)

Deficiency of the seventh component of complement has been found in the serum of a 42-yr-old Caucasian woman who has Raynaud's phenomenon, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasia. Partial deficiency was found in the serum of the patient's parents and children, indicating a pattern of inheritance of autosomal codominance. Transfusion experiments indicated that exogenous C7 had a 91-h halk-life in the patient. There was no evidence for C7 synthesis after transfusion. No C7 inhibitors were detected in the patient's serum. The patient's serum was found to support the activation of complement by both the classical and properdin pathways to the C7 stage. The addition of C7 to the patient's serum permitted it to support hemolytic reactions initiated by either pathway. No defects could be detected in plasma or whole blood coagulation. The patient's serum was deficient in opsonizing unsensitized yeast particles in serum and in the generation of chemotactic factor by antigen-antibody complexes and endotoxin. Both deficiencies were corrected by the addition of C7. These observations suggest a key role for C7 for in vitro yeast phagocytosis and chemotaxis generation. However, the patient's lack of infections indicates a relatively minor role for C7 in human resistance to infection.  (+info)

Hypochlorite-induced alterations to canine serum complement. (8/83)

Changes in the concentration of the components of complement produced by NaOC1 both in vitro and in vivo are recorded. C1, C4 and C7 are particularly sensitive to this oxidizing agent, although all components decrease at high concentrations of NaOC1. Following oxidation, complement componenets return rapidly to normal. Data are presented to indicate that part of this repair mechanism is due to the action of reducing agents such as ascorbic acid and part is due to the synthesis of the individual components. The unique sensitivity of complement components to oxidation make this treatment of potential value in suppressing the inflammatory response.  (+info)

Auburn Hills, MI Detroit Shock Head Coach and Director of Player Personnel Bill Laimbeer announced today that the team has acquired Minnesota Lynx guard Katie Smith and Minnesota s 2006 second round draft pick in exchange for Chandi Jones, Stacey Thomas
Over the past few years, General Mills has positioned itself as something like the anti-Chick-fil-A, celebrating LGBT pride and vehemently opposing Minnesota s proposed gay marriage ban. All of that is very nice but come on, this is 2014. If you re a food company and you haven t made an adorable ad featuring a gay couple with their children, you re just another face in the pro-gay corporate crowd. Luckily, General Mills has now decided to get with the program, releasing a commercial with a gay couple, their adopted daughter, and a bowl of Cheerios. And the ad is just as impossibly cute as ...
Son yıllarda yapılan çalışmalar, iklim değişiklilerinin hidrolojik döngünün bileşenleri üzerinde önemli etkilere sebep olduğunu göstermektedir. Çok geniş alanlarda sürekli olmayan atmosfer hareketinin bir sonucu olan geniş ölçekli salınımlar (basınç dalgalanmaları) dönemsel karaktere sahip iklim anomalileridir. Bu anlamda Güneyli Salınımın değişkenliğini kontrol eden mekanizmaları anlamak iklim değişimini kontrol eden sistemleri de anlamamıza yardımcı olacaktır. Bu sebepten dolayı, çalışmada, Karadeniz Bölgesindeki Yeşilırmak Havzasında yer alan 17085, 17086, 17087, 17030 Nolu meteoroloji istasyonlarına ait yağış verilerinin homojenlik ve trend analizleri ile Oceanic nino index tablosunun ekstrem evreleri ile karşılaştırılmalar yapılarak Güneyli Salınımın bölge üzerindeki etkileri araştırılmıştır.

Nici dac-ar fi golit trei butoaie de pălincă, două de vin și s-ar fi dres cu o tonă de bere, premierul DouăDoze n-ar fi putut avea o logică mai alambicată în privința pensiilor și indemnizațiilor decât are zilele astea. Deși încearcă să ne îmbrobodească, prin gurile sale de rezervă, gen Olguța, Țuțuianu și alți țuțări, că măsurile sunt justificate, că dreptate sociale, că echitate, că alea-alea, concluzia, după toată această tevatură, este una singură: militarii și polițiștii care au primit pensii nesimțite și foloase necuvenite rămân cu banii, iar ăia care n-au primit până acum, să-și pună pofta-n cui, că nici n-o să mai primească. Asta e dreptatea pesedistă, fraților, obișnuiți-vă cu ideea.. Carevasăzică, guvernul e decis să schimbe modul de calcul al pensiilor angajaților MapN și MAI, dar n-o să-i pună pe apeviștii și milițiștii care sunt deja pensionari să aducă banii primiți în mod nemeritat înapoi. Chiar dacă ...

Toka setti on nimeltään The Midas Touch. Nää on nyt niitä hypetettyjä ovaalin muotoisia siveltimiä joita näkyy joka paikassa. Oon ite halunnut kokeillä näitä jo pidemmän aikaa, ja innoissani sit lähin testaamaan näitä ekana. Tän malliset sudit itsessään vaatii jo vähän erilaisen tekniikan kuin normaalit siveltimet, kädet kuitenkin joutuu olemaan vähän eri asennossa ja tuotteet levittyy eri tavalla. Kuitenkin pakko sanoa suoraan että en tykännyt lopputuloksesta mitä näillä sai aikaan, enkä usko että se johtuu tekniikasta. Meikkivoiteen levittäminen oli ihan mission impossible, eikä sitä voinut vaan jättää sen näköiseksi, oli pakko lähteä levittämään sitä uudelleen toisella sudilla koska näiden meikkivoidesudilla siitä tuli ihan epätasainen. Eyelinersudeista ja luomivärisudeista tykkäsin kyllä ihan sikana. Oli tosi helppoa levittää niillä meikkiä kun käden pystyi pitämään poissa silmien edestä ...
Iholla luonnostaa elävä hiivasieni voi joskus aiheuttaa kosteisiin ihotaipeisiin tulehduksia. Infektioalue on usein tarkkarajainen ja sen reuna mutkittelee. Siihen voi liittyä kohtalaista kutinaa. Hoitona on pesu saippualla ja vedellä sekä kuivaus kaksi kertaa päivässä. Tämän jälkeen tulehtunut ihoalue voidellaan sienilääkkeellä - tavallisesti kaksi kertaa päivässä 2-3 viikon ajan. Tarkoitukseen sopivia lääkkeitä ovat mm. klotrimatsolia (Canesten 1 % emulsiovoide) ja mikonatsolia (Daktarin 2 % puuteri, Daktartin 2 % emulsio iholle) sisältävät emulsiovoiteet. Tutustu lisäksi huolella pakkausselosteeseen. Jos itsehoito ei ole auttanut kolmessa viikossa, on syytä mennä lääkäriin diagnoosin tarkistamiseksi.. Lisää tietoa aiheesta: www.terveyskirjasto.fi.

Vaikkakin tämän käsittämättömän tapahtuman etymologisia kausaliteettejä on nykyaikana enää mahdoton hakea, on selvää että tämä tapahtuma vahvisti BP:n yhteenkuuluvuutta ja johti jopa osittaiseen sosiaaliseen rekonstruktioon.

Kehräsin messuilta ostetun sarisilkkilangan kaveriksi yksisäikeistä mustaa merinosillkiä. Kehrätty lanka on ihanan pehmoista ja kiiltävää. Taustalla näkyy kehräämätöntä villatopsia.

Den här kunskapssammanställningen utgår från ett uppdrag från Arbetsmiljöverket med syfte att utifrån befintlig forskning klargöra vilka samband som finns mellan organisatoriska och psykosociala faktorer i arbetet i förhållande till olika arbets- och hälsorelaterade utfall bland yrkesarbetande kvinnor och män. Ytterligare ett syfte består i att beskriva hur vanligt förekommande olika organisatoriska och psykosociala faktorer är bland yrkesarbetande kvinnor och män. För att kunna hantera ett sådant omfattande uppdrag behövs en strukturerad ansats. För att klargöra om och hur olika faktorer i arbetet hänger samman med olika utfall identifierades relevanta systematiska översiktsstudier, inklusive metaanalyser och systematiska litteratursammanställningar, genom litteratursökning i databaser som samlar internationell och nationell forskningslitteratur. Olika söktermer användes för att identifiera sådan forskningslitteratur samt systematiska litteraturöversikter från ...

A Hamburger moment sequence (s_n) is characterized by positive definiteness of the infinite Hankel matrix \mathcal H={s_m+n}. In the indeterminate case, where different measures have the same moments, there exists an infinite symmetric matrix \mathcal A={a_j,k} given by the reproducing kernel K(z,w)=\sum_n=0^∞P_n(z)P_n(w)=\sum_j,k=0^∞a_j,kz^jw^k, defined in terms of the orthonormal polynomials P_n(z). We say that the matrix product \mathcal A\mathcal H is absolutely convergent, if all elements of \mathcal A\mathcal H are defined by absolutely convergent series. We study the question if the matrix product \mathcal A\mathcal H is absolutely convergent and yields the identity matrix \mathcal I. We prove that this is always the case, when the moment problem is symmetric and xP_n(x)=b_nP_n+1(x)+b_n-1P_n-1(x) for a sequence (b_n) such that b_n-1/b_n\le q,1 for n sufficiently large, hence in particular for eventually log-convex sequences (b_n) such that ∑1/b_n,∞. It also holds for certain ...

... is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, with a structure related to the putative primordial form of the family. As members of the immunoglobulin superfamily play fundamental roles in intercellular recognition involved in various immunologic phenomena, differentiation, and development, basigin is thought also to play a role in intercellular recognition (Miyauchi et al., 1991; Kanekura et al., 1991).[9][10] It has a variety of functions. In addition to its metalloproteinase-inducing ability, basigin also regulates several distinct functions, such as spermatogenesis, expression of the monocarboxylate transporter and the responsiveness of lymphocytes.[6] Basigin is a type I integral membrane receptor that has many ligands, including the cyclophilin (CyP) proteins Cyp-A and CyP-B and certain integrins.[11][12][13] It is expressed by many cell types, including epithelial cells, endothelial cells and leukocytes. The human basigin protein contains 269 amino acids that form two heavily ...
