C3b molecules are continuously deposited onto target surfaces. Deposition occurs through a covalent linkage between a thioester that is exposed upon C3 cleavage, and a hydroxyl or other nucleophilic group of glycoproteins on the target cell surface [Smiley ML & Friedman HA 1985; Lewis LA et al. 2008].
