Species-restricted target cell lysis by human complement: complement-lysed erythrocytes from heterologous and homologous species differ in their ratio of bound to inserted C9.

Abstract

The cytolytic efficiency of the terminal complement complex (C5b-9) against erythrocytes of different species is, in part, dependent on the species of C9 origin. In the present study, we have examined the interaction of C9 with erythrocytes in terms of the binding, dimerization, and insertion of C9 into the membranes of sheep and human erythrocytes lysed by… (More)
