The first step in the activation of the classical complement pathway, by immune complexes, involves the binding of the globular heads of C1q to the Fc regions of aggregated IgG or IgM. Located C-terminal to the collagen region, each globular head is composed of the C-terminal halves of one A (ghA), one B (ghB), and one C chain (ghC). To dissect their(More)
