Background: The membrane attack complex (MAC) is an ancient component of immune defense that assembles lytic pores in pathogen… Expand Complement component C6 is a part of the lytic membrane attack complex formed during complement activation. Animal modeling to… Expand In order to elucidate the function of complement component C6, truncated C6 molecules were expressed recombinantly. These were… Expand Deficiency of the sixth component of complement (C6D) is frequently associated with recurrent neisserial infections, especially… Expand The linked C6 and C7 loci are rich in genetic markers, both at the protein and DNA levels. There are now seven common DNA… Expand Component C6 of the human complement system exhibits a genetic polymorphism in all populations tested so far. Using isoelectric… Expand The role of the lytic complement C5b-9 membrane attack complex (MAC) in acute passive transfer experimental autoimmune myasthenia… Expand The molecular architecture of human complement component C6 was elucidated at several levels of structural organization. The… Expand Complement C6 is one of five plasma proteins that are incorporated into the lytic terminal complement complex on lipid membranes… Expand Genetic polymorphism of human C6 was investigated in Japanese using isoelectric focusing and a specific haemolytic overlay method… Expand
