Antibody 1 (IMAGE) Rice University Caption Rice University chemists have designed a plug-in metalloprotein to simplify the task of making targeted antibody therapies. The researchers used a triple-metalated peptide (inset) to give a specific function to antibodies (purple) with a therapeutic warhead. The modified antibodies selectively targeted the surface of breast cancer cells in the lab (image).
