For example, IgG1 can bind to C1q and activate the classical complement pathway opsonization
, leading to phagocytosis of the S.
: The process by which antibodies bind to a pathogen, thereby marking it for destruction by phagocytosis.
Hyperglycemic Effects on Complement Opsonization
When poorly controlled, there is disturbance of cell-mediated immunity, alterations in opsonization
and decreased chemotactic activity of granulocytes and monocytes.
Inhibition of complement-mediated opsonization
and phagocytosis of Streptococcus pyogenes by D fragments of fibrinogen and fibrin bound to cell surface M protein.
It is responsible for debris scavenging, complement-mediated opsonization
and lysis of foreign organisms, and bacterial destruction via oxidative burst mechanisms (i.e., superoxide and hydrogen peroxide formation).
PRRs, IgG, and IgM clusters recognize microbial or apoptotic cells and activate the complement cascade, which leads to the assembly of a terminal complement complex, bacterial lysis, and activation of several nonlethal signals that promote opsonization
, chemotaxis, and TLR signaling  (Figure 2).

," Immunobiology, vol.
Artesunate induces changes either in the parasite or in the RBC directly and led to increased antigenicity and thus increased opsonization
. Terminal half-lives of the orally administered drugs are usually less than 2 h.
This was due to the fact that phagocytosis is facilitated by antibody mediated opsonization
. The communication between macrophages and B-cell is continuing through cytokine signaling as well as cell-cell contact involved in antigen presentation.
These cells are polymorphonuclear leukocytes which have capability to phagocyte the bare nuclei of other leukocytes with the help of auto antibodies, thus providing opsonization
to the liberated nuclear material of the target cell.
