Exam 1 Questions

Space to post questions from the Exam 1 that anyone might have. Hope you find this helpful.

For example: on question 13: why is the classical pathway not the mannose-binding lectin pathway a result of an adaptive immune response? I thought all of complement was an adaptive immune response.
Answer: only in the classical pathway does C1 bind to an antibody. Alternative begins spontaneously and mannose-binding lectin begins with mannose which is a charbohydrate not part of the adaptive immune system.
