Complement Component 5, C3 and PZP-Like Alpha-2-Macroglobulin Domain-Containing Protein 4, C5a Anaphylatoxin, Prepro-C5, CPAMD4, Anaphylatoxin C5a Analog, ECLZB, C5A, C5D, C5b, C5.
Complement C5 is cleaved into C5a and C5b and is activated by all 3 pathways of complement activation. Each pathway of complement activation generates proteolytic enzyme complexes which binds to the target surface. These enzymes cleave a peptide bond in the larger alpha chain of C5 releasing the highly potent anaphylatoxin C5a and activating C5b. C5a has an imperative role in chemotaxis and C5b forms the 1st part of the complement membrane attack complex. Complement C5 is the 5th component of complement, which plays a central role in inflammatory and cell killing processes.
