Reagents, Immunoassay, Protein, Complement Component, C5a
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to detect and/or measure levels of C5a, a potent anaphylatoxin product of the complement component C5. C5 is found in the final complement pathway. Complement component C5a causes the release of histamine (edema); it is frequently found in infected tissues. C5 deficiency is associated with systemic Neisseria species; the presence of C5a is associated to inflammatory diseases.
