The complement system is a collection of plasma enzymes that interact in a complex way as a reaction to cell injury, and is central to the immune response. The enzymes that make up the system and their interactions are very widely studied. This volume provides detailed practical protocols for quantitation of the complement components, inhibitors, and receptors, and methods for analysis of complement biosynthesis and for the study of complement in non-human species.
