BACKGROUND/AIMS Somatic cells are protected against complement-mediated injury by specialized membrane proteins, known as complement-regulatory proteins (CRP). The knowledge of the pattern of CRP expression in the liver is important to evaluate the role of complement-mediated injury in graft rejection. METHODS We determined the distribution of four main CRP: membrane cofactor protein (MCP), decay accelerating factor (DAF), protectin, and complement receptor 1 (CR1) in 30 histologically normal… CONTINUE READING
