Complement

Complement system is one of the essential effector systems of innate non-specific immunity. The main components of complement are activated step by step by converting the inactive form to the active enzymes. The result of this cascade is massive amplification of the response and activation of the cell-killing membrane attack complex (MAC) and lysis of the target cell.

The interactive presentation contains study material about ways of complement activation, determination of its activity and a set of the test questions. Through these questions the students can verify the acquired knowledge with the possibility of feedback.

In non-specific defence, the most important barrier to the spread of microorganisms is their destruction by phagocytes. Phagocytosis is the ability of professional phagocytes to recognize, absorb, kill and degrade foreign material.

The interactive presentation contains study material about cells that provide immune responses and a set of test questions. Through these questions the students can verify the acquired knowledge with the possibility of feedback.
