19048311 C8gamma binds an indel peptide of C8alpha sequence and forms a non-covalent complex.
18440555 Results describe the crystal structure of the human C8 alpha MACPF domain disulfide-linked to C8 gamma (alphaMACPF-gamma) at 2.15 A resolution.
17452033 structure of a C8gamma.laurate complex revealed Y83 and Y131 can move to allow penetration of hydrocarbon chain of laurate into the lower cavity. A Y83W mutation blocked access but had no effect on the ability of C8gamma to enhance C8 cytolytic activity
16935577 One can predict that the indel segment of C8alpha assumes a conformation that allows for multiple points of contact with C8gamma.
16618117 results indicate that the principal binding site for C9 lies within the MACPF domain of C8alpha; they also suggest this site and the binding sites for C8beta and C8gamma are distinct
12413696 C8 alpha and C8 beta have correspondingly similar roles in MAC-mediated lysis of erythrocytes and bacterial killing. C8 gamma is not required for complement-mediated killing of Gram-negative bacteria.
12220191 Binding of C8 gamma subunit to C8 beta is dependent on the thrombospondin type 1 module + low-density lipoprotein receptor class A module + membrane attack complex/perforin domain of C8 beta.
