Elucidation of the substrate specificity of the C1s protease of the classical complement pathway.

Abstract

The complement system is a central component of host defense but can also contribute to the inflammation seen in pathological conditions. The C1s protease of the first complement component, the C1 complex, initiates the pathway. In this study we have elucidated the full specificity of the enzyme for the first time using a randomized phage display library… (More)
