Custom 3D Printed Protein Models

Commission a Biologic Model Work with a biomedical visualization scientist to translate any x-ray crystallography data-set into a hand-held model of that protein. We’ll uncover what makes each protein interesting and design a unique work of art, a scientific model that tells your unique story. Fill out this short survey, and we’ll process a quote for […]

Hemoglobin Gets Its Own Action Figure

Creating a Protein Action Figure Shortly after creating the first 3D print of Oxygenated Hemoglobin, Wired Magazine found our blog post and wanted to write a short article on it. By the time the article was ready for press, Michael Gulen and I had completed our prototype of Oxygenated Hemoglobin cast in durable colored palastics […]

Zinc Fingers bound to DNA

A 2.2 A Resolution Crystal Structure of a Designed Zinc Finger Protein Bound to DNA Considerable recent effort has been devoted to the design and selection of sequence-specific DNA binding proteins based on tandem arrays of Cys2His2 zinc finger domains. While the DNA binding properties of these designed proteins have been studied extensively, the structural […]

Porcine Trypsin PDB ID: 1S81

Protein Description “An understanding of the physiological and toxicological properties of borate and the utilization of boronic acids in drug development require a basic understanding of borate-enzyme chemistry. We report here the extension of our recent NMR studies indicating the formation of a ternary borate-alcohol-trypsin complex. Crystallographic and solution state NMR studies of porcine trypsin […]

Rubisco

A crystal form of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase from Nicotiana tabacum in the activated state. A new crystal form of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (EC 4.1.1.39) from Nicotiana tabacum has been obtained at alkaline pH with polyethylene glycol 8000 in the presence of a non-ionic detergent, beta-octyl glucoside. The crystals are grown at room temperature by the hanging-drop vapor […]

Protein Models as tools for STEM Education

We’ve known college students enjoy using physical models of proteins and learn equally well from both computer-aided molecular visualization software as they do physical models. Could the same apply to kids?  How young of an audience can we communicate basic molecular biology?  In doing so, can we raise basic science literacy at a young age?  We believe that […]
