Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Shipping Information Distributed: freeze-dried
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--4.2, 2.5, 1.5, 0.4; HindIII--4.5, 2.4, 1.7; BamHI--2.9, 2.7, 2.3, 0.6; PstI--2.5, 2.3, 1.4, 1.4; SacI--8.4.
Insert contains the following sites separated by (bp): (V/I)- 9- NcoI- 648- KpnI- 116- BglII- 242- XhoI- 711- BglI- 28- HindIII- 390- BamHI- 38- EcoRV- 567- HpaI- 28- BamHI- 759- HindIII- 971- AccI- 710- (I/V). V=vector, I=insert.
Because of internal XhoI, HpaI and BamHI sites, the insert can not easily be isolated as one fragment.
Contains an open reading frame of 4920 bp (specifying 1640 amino acids) and 351 bp of 3' untranslated sequence.
At the amino acid level, there is significant homology between the mouse, rat, porcine, bovine and human C5.
