Complement component 3

Complement C3, C-3, Complement C3b, Complement C3a
Complement component C3 plays a central role in the activation of complement system. Its activation is required for both classical and alternative complement activation pathways. People with C3 deficiency are susceptible to bacterial infection. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009] (from NCBI)

Astrocyte-Microglia Cross Talk through Complement Activation Modulates Amyloid Pathology in Mouse Models of Alzheimer's Disease.
Zheng et al., Houston, United States. In J Neurosci, Feb 2016

IAs are associated with an increase in levels of immunologic markers, particularly complement C3 and C9, immunoglobulins IgG and IgM, M1/M2 macrophages, monocytes, and B and T lymphocytes; increase in blood and CSF levels of adhesion molecules; selectins found on vascular endothelium, platelets, and leukocytes; doubled ratios of elastase-to-alpha-1-antitrypsin as controls; elevated levels of neurofilament heavy chain SM135 and S-100 post rupture; and locus 19q13 with many candidate genes.
Future perspectives in target-specific immunotherapies of myasthenia gravis.
Dalakas, Philadelphia, United States. In Ther Adv Neurol Disord, Nov 2015
Novel biological agents currently on the market, directed against the following molecular pathways, are relevant and specific therapeutic targets that can be tested in MG: (a) T cell intracellular signaling molecules, such as anti-CD52, anti-interleukin (IL) 2 receptors, anti- costimulatory molecules, and anti-Janus tyrosine kinases (JAK1, JAK3) that block the intracellular cascade associated with T-cell activation; (b) B cells and their trophic factors, directed against key B-cell molecules; (c) complement C3 or C5, intercepting the destructive effect of complement-fixing antibodies; (d) cytokines and cytokine receptors, such as those targeting IL-6 which promotes antibody production and IL-17, or the p40 subunit of IL-12/1L-23 that affect regulatory T cells; and (e) T and B cell transmigration molecules associated with lymphocyte egress from the lymphoid organs.

Wen et al., In Bing Du Xue Bao, 2014
Three models have been proposed, including: (1) interactions between antibody and FcR, complement C3 fragment and CR, or between C1q and C1qR, which promotes viral attachment to cells; (2) suppression of IFN-gamma-mediated host-cell antiviral gene expression by the upregulation of negative regulators of pathogen pattern recognition; and (3) the promotion of early IL-10 secretion.
