C3b attaches to bacterial surface ; complement regulatory proteins inactivate it

Figure 19.8 Avoiding the Alternative Pathway of Complement Activation

Some bacterial pathogens foil the activation of the complement system by carrying surface components that attach to host cell regulatory proteins.The regulatory proteins inactivate C3b that has bound to a surface.
