Antibody-independent activation of the alternative complement pathway by measles virus-infected cells.

Abstract

When HeLa cells acutely infected with measles virus were incubated in a mixture containing only the six proteins of the alternative pathway of complement activation (C3, factors B and D, beta 1H, C3b inactivator, and native properdin) without antibody, there was activation of the alternative pathway as shown by progressive uptake of 125I-labeled C3b onto… (More)
