C3b antibody | H11
Mouse anti Human C3b antibody, clone H11 recognizes human C3b, part of the complement system. C3 is cleaved by C3-convertase creating C3a and C3b, which binds to the surface of pathogens leading to their destruction by phagocytic cells. Mouse anti Human C3b antibody, clone H11 recognizes a determinant present on native (circulating) C3 and on the fragments C3b and C3c. The antibody is directed to a determinant present on the betachain of the C3 molecule (Western blot). It does not react with the anaphylatoxin C3a or the fragment C3d and does not inhibit the haemolytic function of C3.
