Theodicy: God's editing system for autoimmune problems (Introduction)

New chaperone molecules prevent attacks:

"Scientists have discovered how special proteins in the blood prevent our immune system from harming our own cells with overproduced molecules.


"The team studied membrane attack complexes (MACs) – components of our immune system that punch minute holes in the membrane of invading bacteria. If enough holes are punched, the bacteria will pop and die.

"The immune system therefore creates loads of MACs when an invader is detected, but not all of these reach their targets, meaning many end up in the bloodstream, where they could potentially damage the body's own cells.

"Scientists knew special chaperone proteins—called clusterin and vitronectin—helped to prevent these MACs from causing unwanted attacks, but didn't know how.

"Now, the team from Imperial and institutions in the Netherlands have managed to capture and investigate in unprecedented detail MAC precursor molecules bound to the chaperone proteins, revealing how the chaperones stop MACs becoming fully functional.


"From their detailed investigation, the team showed that clusterin attaches to a precursor version of MACs that is dissolved in the bloodstream. It then prevents the MAC from building up more of the components it needs to fully assemble and carry out its hole-punching attack."

Comment: All the editing systems show God knew what systems to edit for errors.
