Serum IgM cannot activate the complement?

Postby vaibhavsmarty » Sat Feb 16, 2008 5:21 am

why??????????
four possibilities can be:
a/it does not have complement binding site
b/it is planar in which complement binding sites in the Fc region are not accesible
c/it gets degraded and hence unable to activate the complement
d/it needs metal ions to activate complement
PLZ HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
