Background Information

Complement factor H (CFH) is an abundant plasma glycoprotein that regulates the function of the alternative complement pathway in fluid phase and on cellular surfaces (PMID: 2963625). Factor H binds to C3b, accelerates the decay of the alternative pathway C3-convertase (C3bBb) and acts as a cofactor for the factor I-mediated proteolytic inactivation of C3b (PMID: 15163532). It plays a critical role in the homeostasis of the complement system in plasma and in the protection of bystander host cells and tissues from damage by complement activation. Abnormalities in factor H have been associated with renal disease (PMID: 18190458).
