A cute, cuddly buddy and an educational aid all in one, this quirky key chain plush makes the perfect gift for yourself, anyone with an interest in medicine, or just a healthy sense of humour!
An antibody, or immunoglobulin, is a Y shaped protein that is used to identify and protect your body from harmful substances. There are amino acid chains on the ends of the Y that attach like puzzle pieces to a specific harmful substance, called an antigen. Humans can produce different antibodies by varying the amino acid chains.
Once the antibody attaches to the threat, it is able to protect the body in a couple different ways. The first is to coat the antigen in order to prevent it from hurting the healthy body cells. Another way is to tell the rest of the immune system to attack the threat. The antibody is the perfect gift for anyone with an interest in biology.
