Hway begins with the formation of an antibody C1q complex on the surface of a pathogen or pathogen infected cell. This complex, in turn, activates C2 via serine proteases and is itself also a serine protease[49]. The protein C2a combines with newly cleaved protein C4a to generate a C3 convertase, C2aC4b. C3b forms the central protein complex of the complement system either by binding to complement

D increases permeability of small blood vessels and smooth muscle contraction. In macrophages, eosinophiles, and neutrophils anaphylatoxins can induce oxidative burst, basophiles, and mast cells release histamine, and C3a can enhance the effect of other proinflammatory cytokines such as TNF, IL-6, and SDF-1. While the mechanism for the many reactions precipitated by complement anaphylatoxins has n

Combine to form a C5 convertase. Runaway complement activation is prevented by binding of Complement Receptor 1 (CR1) and a constitutively active membrane bound Decay Accelerating Factor (DAF, or CD55) which can prevent the complement cascade[51]. In patients with severe dengue, large amounts of C3a have been detected revealing a role for complement in dengue pathogenesis. This finding might be an

Helial cells, smooth muscles cells, and activated T-cells, but, interestingly, not na e T-cells. C5aR also activates a number of downstream signaling pathways including PI3K- (Phosophoinosital -3 Kinase), PLC (Phospholipase C), PLD (Phospholipase D), Raf and WASP (Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein). As a key modulator of the immune system, complement derived proteins clearly have the capacity to af

At typically binds to IgG and is composed of an chain for domain recognition, an ITAM (immunoreceptor tyrosine based activation motif), and a chain that is responsible for signal transduction. It is thought that IgM does not play a direct role in ADE and instead contributes to disease pathogenesis through activation of complement receptors[13]. IgM antibody enhancement was abrogated when C3R is

N, however, when cells were exposed to heterologus antigens they produced significantly higher amounts of TNF in relation to IFN[41]. During primary infections in mice, dengue specific CD4+ cells were low; however, in all four viral serotypes of a secondary infection there is a marked increase CD4+ response. Not only did CD4+ cells increase IFN production, but they increased CD8+ effector cell act
