The complement system is a critical component of innate immunity that requires regulation to avoid inappropriate activation. This regulation is provided by many proteins, including complement factor H (CFH), a critical regulator of the alternative pathway of complement activation. Given its regulatory function, mutations in CFH have been implicated in(More)

The complement system has many regulators that control activation; both membrane-bound and soluble factors.(More)
