16618117 results indicate that the principal binding site for C9 lies within the MACPF domain of C8alpha; they also suggest this site and the binding sites for C8beta and C8gamma are distinct
12413696 C8 alpha and C8 beta have correspondingly similar roles in MAC-mediated lysis of erythrocytes and bacterial killing. C8 gamma is not required for complement-mediated killing of Gram-negative bacteria.
12220191 The binding specificity between C8 beta and C8 alpha subunits is determined by a cooperative interaction of the N-terminal thrombospondin type 1 module and the membrane attack complex/perforin domain.
