Following the complement cascade, C5b with C6-C9 forms the "membrane attack complex" (MAC), capable of lysing infected cells and pathogens [17, 18].
The complement system affects liver function and process of liver cirrhosis and eliminates virus-infected and cancer cells as well.[sup][9],[10] The sixth component of the complement system (C6) is involved in the formation of a membrane attack complex (MAC) with other components (C5–C9) following activation of the complement cascade.[sup][11] The MAC was reported to mediate transplant rejection, C6 is an acute phase protein, which was studied in a rat heart transplantation model.[sup][12] Interestingly, we demonstrated that patients with C6 rs9200 GA presented with HCC recurrence following OLT.[sup][13] However, to the best of our knowledge, no research has yet found the association between C6 gene polymorphisms and tacrolimus pharmacokinetics.
