|Detection of Mouse Complement Factor D/Adipsin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse adipose tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse Complement Factor D/Adipsin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5430) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for Complement Factor D/Adipsin at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.|
Complement Factor D (also Adipsin, C3 convertase activator and Properdin factor D) is a 37‑43 kDa member of the S1 peptidase family of enzymes. In mouse, it is secreted by fat cells and helps form C3 convertase, a complex of C3b, Factor B and Factor D. This complex cleaves C3 into C3b and C3a, the latter of which is converted into ASP, a molecule that binds the adipocyte receptor C5L2 and induces triglyceride synthesis. Mature mouse Complement Factor D contains one peptidase S1 domain that cleaves an Arg‑Lys bond. There are at least two potential alternative splice forms. One shows a two aa substitution for aa 1‑71, and a second shows a 15 aa substitution for aa 1‑107. Mature mouse Complement Factor D shares 85% and 68% aa identity with rat and human Complement Factor D, respectively.
