I don't think it matters either way. If you are asking this to find out the correct answer, you can still eliminate the wrong choices and arrive at the correct answer E. A, B and C use the unidiomatic construction seeming unlimited. It has to be seemingly unlimited (adverb is needed to modify the adjective).

Between D and E - D changes the meaning - the intended meaning is that each of the antibodies is targeted specifically at an invading microbe.

That's my $.02
