Complement C4 (C4)

Target (abbrv.) C4
Target (full name) Complement C4
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL000316 (4481-34_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol C4AC4B
UniProt ID P0C0L4P0C0L5
UniProt Comment
  • P0C0L4: Non-enzymatic component of C3 and C5 convertases and thus essential for the propagation of the classical complement pathway. Covalently binds to immunoglobulins and immune complexes and enhances the solubilization of immune aggregates and the clearance of IC through CR1 on erythrocytes. C4A isotype is responsible for effective binding to form amide bonds with immune aggregates or protein antigens, while C4B isotype catalyzes the transacylation of the thioester carbonyl group to form ester bonds with carbohydrate antigens.
