Gene: C3 (complement C3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: C3
Name: complement C3
Description: Exhibits cofactor binding activity and lipid binding activity; involved in several processes, including blood coagulation, complement activation, and response to steroid hormone; localizes to the extracellular space; used to study glomerulonephritis, membranous glomerulonephritis, obesity, pneumonia, and pre-eclampsia; biomarker of several diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, artery disease (multiple), brain ischemia (multiple), eye disease (multiple), and hepatocellular carcinoma; orthologous to human C3 (complement C3); PARTICIPATES IN classical complement pathway; Chagas disease pathway; coagulation cascade pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-colchicine; 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 13-BETA-ETHYL-17-ALPHA-ETHYNYL-17-BETA-HYDROXYGON-4-EN-3-ONE.
