Newly discovered antibody may be body's natural defense against Alzheimer's

...c proteins based on their shape may have important implications for immune therapy of other neurologic disorders, the researchers explain. "We were able to confirm that the antibodies we found not only recognize oligomers of beta amyloid but also unhealthy forms of other proteins that accumulate in a wide var...

Physicist cracks women's random but always lucky choice of X chromosome

...hromosomes but the explanation may have much wider implications as at least 10% of our genes may behave in similar ways as mechanism that "chooses" between X chromosomes. Examples of this range from the immune system to our olfactory apparatus. Coming at the problem from the perspective of a physicist Dr Nicod...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration
