Mouse anti human complement factor Bb neoantigen monoclonal antibody, clone 032B-22.1.X recognizes a neoantigen of the Bb fragment of human complement factor B. Factor B is 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 and forming C3 convertase. Subunit Bb is involved in the proliferation of preactivated B lymphocytes. Conversely, Ba inhibits lymphocyte proliferation.
