Modulation of C3a Activity: Internalization of the Human C3a Receptor and its Inhibition by C5a1 | The Journal of Immunology

The C3a receptor (C3aR) is expressed on most human peripheral blood leukocytes with the exception of resting lymphocytes, implying a much higher pathophysiological relevance of the anaphylatoxin C3a as a proinflammatory mediator than previously thought. The response to this complement split product must be tightly regulated in situations with sustained…
