Abstract
The complete amino acid sequence of mature C8 beta has been derived from the DNA sequence of a cDNA clone identified by expression screening of a human liver cDNA library. Comparison with the amino acid sequence of C9 shows an overall homology with few deletions and insertions. In particular, the cysteine-rich domains and membrane-inserting regions of C9 are well conserved. These findings are discussed in relation to a possible mechanism of membrane attack complex formation.
