Abstract

Inflammation and phagocytosis are highly complex events involving many humoral and cellular factors, with complement components playing a key role. As described here by Mike Frank and Louis Fries, complement peptides trigger cell function, aid in the recognition of invading pathogens and regulate the phagocytic process via interactions with specific cell surface receptors.
