Complement Inactivation

Does anyone know anything about the process of heat-inactivating serum 
complement by incubating at 60oC for 30 min. Specifically I'd like to know 
whether this step should prevent C3 binding to bacterial surfaces or does 
the inactivation occur by affecting a different step in the complement 
pathway ?

Thanks in advance

Iain
