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. The antibody is the perfect gift for a biology teacher!
