Background: Complement Component C5a R1
C5a R1, also known as C5a ligand and CD88, is a 7TM protein expressed on myeloid, endothelial, epithelial, and smooth muscle cells. C5a R1 binds the activated complement anaphylatoxin C5a. In established allergic environments, this triggers neutrophil and eosinophil chemotaxis and the release of proinflammatory mediators. In contrast, C5a R1/C5a interactions are protective during allergen sensitization. Mouse C5a R1 shares 66% and 77% amino acid sequence identity with human and rat C5a R, respectively.
