Argonne research offers clues to Alzheimer's plaques

...re needed for physiological processes; others have antibacterial properties. Amyloid peptides are chains of 40 to 42 amino acid residues. Due to their unique chemical architecture, consisting of water-loving and water-avoiding amino acid sequences, Alzheimer's peptides "self-assemble" to form tangles of fibrils i...

Scientists at Scripps Research Institute address mysteries of ozone in the human body

... The work of the TSRI scientists suggests that the antibacterial effect of neutrophils is enhanced by antibodies. In addition to killing the bacteria themselves, the neutrophils feed singlet oxygen to the antibodies, which convert it into ozone, adding weapons to the assault. "This is really something new, and the...

...a plasmid) that serves as the blueprint to make an antibacterial toxin, or antibiotic, called colicin. The plasmid also encodes a protein that renders the bacterium immune to its own colicin and a protein that causes colicin to be released when the cell is under stress. Colicin-producing bacteria can kill bacteria...
