C1Q v.s. C1q[edit]

The names for the complement system proteins here are a bit off. The accepted annotation for these proteins in all of the biology books I have ever come across is "C1q" not "C1Q", in addition all of the Wikipedia complement pages use the little q nomenclature. Technically C1Q is the name of the gene that encodes for the C1q protein, but since this page is referring to the function of the protein, it should be renamed C1q. Similarly: C1r and C1s, C8a. Although the receptor names appear to be correct. Hopefully this is clear?--DO11.10 21:16, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
