Title: How do antibodies act when they form complexes?
Post by: scientizscht on 18/10/2019 12:53:24
Hello

Antibodies are supposed to bind to antigens and trigger immune reaction. How do antibodies trigger immune reaction when they bind with antigens and form complexes? How these complexes trigger immune reaction given that antibodies themselves do not trigger reaction and antigens themselves also do not trigger immune reaction, but only when they bind together they trigger immune reaction.

Thanks!
