A growing body of evidence links the complement system, in particular mannan-binding lectin
(MBL) and the lectin partway, to this pathophysiological process.
Different molecular events result in low protein levels of mannan-binding lectin
in populations from southeast Africa and South America.
Adult mallard ducks (Arias platyrhynchos) were orally dosed with bunker C fuel oil for 5 days, and 5 different inflammatory markers (haptoglobin, mannan-binding lectin
, ceruloplasmin, unsaturated iron-binding capacity, and plasma iron) were measured in blood plasma before and 8, 24, 48, and 72 hours after exposure.
The lectin pathway is initiated when MBL (mannan-binding lectin
) or ficolins (L-H-M) bind to patterns of carbohydrates [1-3] or acetyl groups on the surface of protozoan, virus, fungi, or bacteria .
promotes complement activation.
