Denaturing of Antigens, Antibodies and Toxins

Postby CM1 » Sun Mar 02, 2008 3:15 pm

In the human body, being proteins, do foreign Antigens, Antibodies and Toxins denature - preventing them from acting how they usually would? If so, please can you let me know of the conditions under which this happens, what happens due to this, and any sources regarding the same.

Thanks in advance

Why would they denature? Is the human body such a harsh environment?
