- M protein for GAS
- Pili of N. gonorrheae
- Protein A of staph.aureus
- All capsules (Strep.pneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Heamophilus influenzae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Neisseria meningitidis)

does preventing intracellular killing count as anti-phagocytic? if so, these two come to mind:

M. tuberculosis - sulfatides
L. monocytogenes - listeriolysis O
