|Description||Compstatin binds to complement component C3 and inhibits complement activation with IC50 of 12 μM.|
Compstatin binds to native C3 and inhibits its cleavage by C3 convertase. Binding of Compstatin to native C3 is a multistep reaction that is preferred over its binding to the C3 fragments C3b and C3c. N-acetylation of Compstatin provides stability against enzymatic degradation. Compstatin features a high selectivity for human and primate C3. While binding to C3 from baboons and other primates shows comparable interaction profiles as its human counterpart, no binding is detected for C3 from lower mammalian species such as mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, or pigs.
|In vivo||Compstatin completely inhibits in vivo heparin/protamine-induced complement activation without adverse effects on heart rate or systemic arterial, central venous, and pulmonary arterial pressures. Compstatin is a safe and effective complement inhibitor that has the potential to prevent complement activation during and after clinical cardiac surgery. Furthermore, Compstatin can serve as the prototype for designing an orally administrated drug. In the extracorporeal circulation model, Compstatin inhibits the generation of C3a and C5a, the formation of the membrane attack complex, and CD11b expression on neutrophils (PMNs). The peptide also inhibits binding of C3/C3 fragments, PMNs, and monocytes to the polymer surface.|

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
