    1. They are responsible for the cleavage of C3 and C5, creating C3a/C3b and C5a/C5b- which are responsible for activating the bulk of the complement immune response.
    2. They are active early in the Classical Pathway of complement activation.
    3. They help activate lymphocytes that respond to antigens that activate complement
    4. They mediate complement by halting converting active complement factors back to their inactive form
    5. They stimulate degranulation of mast cells and basophils
