C5a definition: Smaller fragment formed when C5 convertase splits C5 into C5a and C5b. C5a is a 74-amino acid peptide that includes a carboxy-terminal arginine crucial for its spasmogenic activity and a carbohydrate moiety. Initiates the spontaneous assembly of the late complement components, C5-C9, into the membrane attack complex. C5a is the most potent anaphylatoxin, mediating immediate hypersensitivity. C5a is also chemotactic for neutrophils and monocytes.
Complement C5a definition: The minor fragment formed when C5 convertase cleaves C5 into C5a and COMPLEMENT C5B. C5a is a 74-amino-acid glycopeptide with a carboxy-terminal ARGININE that is crucial for its spasmogenic activity. Of all the complement-derived anaphylatoxins, C5a is the most potent in mediating immediate hypersensitivity (HYPERSENSITIVITY, IMMEDIATE), smooth MUSCLE CONTRACTION; HISTAMINE RELEASE; and migration of LEUKOCYTES to site of INFLAMMATION.
DNA, Recombinant definition: Biologically active DNA which has been formed by the in vitro joining of segments of DNA from different sources. It includes the recombination joint or edge of a heteroduplex region where two recombining DNA molecules are connected.
recombinant DNA definition: DNA artificially constructed by combining genes from different organisms or by cloning chemically altered DNA, usually for the purpose of genetic manipulation.
Recombinant DNA definition: Biologically active DNA which has been formed by the in vitro joining of segments of DNA from different sources usually for the purpose of genetic manipulation.
luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone definition: LH-RH. A hormone that stimulates the production of sex hormones in men and women.
luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone definition: Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone. A hormone that stimulates the production of sex hormones in men and women.
Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone definition: A decapeptide that stimulates the synthesis and secretion of both pituitary gonadotropins, LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE. GnRH is produced by neurons in the septum PREOPTIC AREA of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released into the pituitary portal blood, leading to stimulation of GONADOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR PITUITARY GLAND.
gonadotropin releasing factor definition: decapeptide hormone released by the hypothalamus which stimulates the synthesis and secretion of both follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland.
Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone definition: Specifically expressed in hypothalamic neurons as a preproprotein, Gonadotropin Releasing Hormones (GnRH Family) are secreted into the median eminence capillary plexus, bind to receptors on anterior pituitary gonadotrophs, and stimulate release of LHRH and FSH gonadotropins to control female reproduction.
