I looked up “opsonization” in the bio dictionary and it just says it’s a way that bacteria are made more readily taken up by phagocytes.
Can someone give me an example?
Antibodies are used to make phagocytosis easier. Heres an animation:
Antigens are attached to the surface of the bacteria. like igG and C3b (i think)
Opsonins (the molecules involved in opsonization) see here:

Some nice animations on this site 🙄
Edit:Looks like James found the same site. Got there before me tho as I was watching it a few times before I submited the post 😡 😀
