Abstract: n, the only known positive regulator of complement activation, is produced by cells of the monocyte–macrophage, T-cell and granulocyte lineages. Complement activation products have an established role in the cellular immune response. However, here, Wilhelm Schwaeble and Kenneth Reid discuss current data demonstrating that leukocytes form a positive feedback loop of activation by properdin release.
