Mouse anti Human Complement Factor B (Ba Fragment) antibody, clone 014III-188.8.131.52
recognises the 30 kDa Ba fragment of 90 kDa human complement factor B, present in blood serum. C3b associates with complement factor B, inducing conformational change. This enables complement factor D to cleave the N-terminal of complement factor B (the Ba subunit), leaving the 63 kDa Bb subunit associated with C3b, forming C3 convertase. Subunit Ba inhibits lymphocyte proliferation. Conversely, subunit Bb is involved in the proliferation of preactivated B lymphocytes.
Mouse anti Human Complement Factor B (Ba Fragment) antibody, clone 014III-184.108.40.206 has been reported for use in functional studies to block activity of the target protein. Removal of Sodium Azide is recommended prior to use in functional assays. Bio-Rad recommend the use of EQU003
for this purpose.
