Complement component 7 is a protein involved in the complement system, where its primary task is to bind the C5bC6 complex together. This junction alters the configuration of the protein molecules exposing a hydrophobic site on C7 that allows the C7 to insert into the phospholipid bilayer of the pathogen.
