The ability of anti-CD40 antibodies to control autoreactive B cells in treatment-refractory autoimmune thrombocytopenia has promised. Such designer therapeutic biologics look likely to replace less-specific therapies such as with polyvalent intravenous immunoglobulin. The amount of antigen required to activate B cells is reduced if C3d is covalently bound to antigen as this leads to the concurrent signalling of CD21 (the complement receptor type 2 on B cells) as well as SIg by antigen. This is also a pathway that is open to manipulation.
It is the interaction between C1q and aggregated IgG or IgM bound to antigen that initiates activation of the classical complement sequence. The fixation of C1q activates C1r and C1s. C1s cleaves C4 and C2, whose active fragments C4b and C2a form the classical pathway C3 convertase. The alternative pathway to C3 activation consists of: r C3b, factor B and factor D; and r the regulatory proteins, properdin, factors H and I. Factor B binds to a cleavage fragment of C3, C3b, to form C3bB. Factor D cleaves the bound factor B to form the alternative pathway C3 BLBK140-Murphy January 15, 2009 14:49 Essential immunology for transfusion medicine convertase (C3bBb).
Membrane glycoproteins, mainly the anion transporter band 3 and the glucose transporter GLUT1, but are also on glycosphingolipids embedded in the membrane. 2, together with their biosynthetic precursor, the H antigen, which is abundant on group O red cells. The product of the A allele is a glycosyltransferase that catalyses the transfer of N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) from a nucleotide donor substrate, UDP-GalNAc, to the fucosylated galactose (Gal) residue of the H antigen, the acceptor substrate.
