Recently, a number of exciting developments have increased our understanding of complement receptors. These advances include determination of the spatial organization of the short consensus repeat unit, analysis of active sites within short consensus repeats, downregulation in vivo of the complement system by a recombinant receptor, elucidation of the structure of mouse receptors and their relationship to human molecules, and the cloning of the human C5a receptor.
