Genetic variation of the sixth component of complement (C6) in the Manx shearwater (Puffinus p. puffinus)



Genetic variation of the sixth component of complement (C6) in the Manx shearwater (Puffinus p. puffinus)



Animal Blood Groups and Biochemical Genetics 13(3): 179-187



A polymorphism in the sixth complement component (C6) has been investigated by isoelectric focusing. The results indicate that C6 is coded by genes at a single autosomal locus. Six structural alleles have been identified, a null allele is also postulated. Five island colonies of Shearwater were investigated, two alleles C6 A and C6 B predominate in all sites. The ability of rabbit C5 and C7 to combine successfully with avian C6 indicates the functional sites of these molecules are highly conserved.
