Conceivably -- no pun intended - as a natural protective mechanism, theuterus tends to reject fertilized eggs that take too long to adhere to thelining because...

Earliest Modern Tree Lived 360-345 Million Years Ago

...; althoughseed plants now have that ability." "The attachment of branches was the same as modern trees, with swelling at thebranch base to form a strengthening collar and with internal layers of wooddovetailed to resist breaking," says Scheckler.

New "Bacteria Bashers" Wipe Out Infection

...e Weizmann scientists have discovered that peptide attachment depends primarily on chemical composition, not structure. As a result, a synthetic peptide does not require a particularly good fit to be effective. This simplicity should make it relatively easy to produce such peptides in large quantities and to d...
