Description…

CD59 is an 18- to 25-kD glycoprotein expressed on all human peripheral blood leukocytes, erythrocytes, and several human cell lines. CD59 is a potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex (MAC) action. It acts by binding to the C8 and/or C9 complements of the assembling MAC, thereby preventing incorporation of the multiple copies of C9 required for complete formation of the osmolytic pore. This inhibitor appears to be species-specific and is involved in signal transduction for T-cell activation complexed to a protein tyrosine kinase.
