A simply example of numpy indexing: The pathway forms a C3 convertase, C4b2a , which splits C3 into two fragments; the large fragment, C3b , can covalently attach to the surface of microbial pathogens and opsonise them; the small fragment, C3a , activates mast cells , causing the release of vasoactive mediators such as histamine.
Hot Network Questions. Activation of the loop is promoted in the presence of bacterial and fungal cell walls, but is inhibited by molecules on the surface of normal mammalian cells.
This pathway is initiated by the splitting of C5 , and attachment of C5b to a target. EDIT A better way to create the mask is: Is this a 1-time operation? BiRico -- wrong.
