“Amaze balls: Testicles site of most diverse proteins”

Yes, New Scientist comes up with another headline you just can’t beat:

Congratulations testicles, you make more unique proteins than any other tissue in the body.

The proteins in our cells and tissues are responsible for everything from repair and maintenance to the production of signalling chemicals. You might expect that the brain, being our most sophisticated organ, would produce the widest array of proteins. But while the brain hosts 318 unique proteins that we know of, testicles are home to 999.

Can’t beat the angle there, either.
