Solubilization of an immune precipitate by serum is a complement function mediated by the alternative pathway and enhanced by the classical pathway--it therefore provides the basis of a simple quantitative assessment of the integrity of complement function. Using a preformed radiolabelled precipitate of BSA-alpha BSA Ab, the solubilization capacity of… CONTINUE READING
