3D Print of Apaf-1 Caspase-9 Holoenzyme

Model Description This is a 3D print of Apaf-1 activating Caspase-9, a key protein involved in apoptosis, or programmed cell death. This model is colored by individual protein chains, with Caspace-9 colored shades of blue and Apaf-1 colored shades of magenta. Protein Description Mammalian intrinsic apoptosis requires activation of the initiator caspase-9, which then cleaves and […]

3D Print of Neutral Ceramidase

Model Description This is a 3D print of Neutral Ceramidase colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature (blue cool, red hot). Models are available in multiple sizes. Protein Description Neutral ceramidase (nCDase) catalyzes conversion of the apoptosis-associated lipid ceramide to sphingosine, the precursor for the proliferative factor sphingosine-1-phosphate. As an enzyme regulating the balance […]

Shiga Toxin

Shiga toxins are a family of related bacterial toxins first discovered by Kiyoshi Shiga while researching the origins of dysentary. Two major groups of this toxin are found in the Shigella dysenteriae and the shigatoxigenic serotypes of Escherichia coli bacteria, Stx1 and Stx2.   As the name suggests, this little bugger causes pretty bad dysentery in humans. Shiga-like Toxin is made of 6 primary chains, 5 […]

3D Print of LptB2FG

This is a 3d print of LptB2FG, a transmembrane protein known to transport lipopolysaccharides (LPS) across the inner plasma membrane to the outer of bacteria. The presence of LPS inhibits the permeability of hydrophobic antibiotics and allows them to survive in harsh environments. Study of Lpt molecules is important to not only understand how LPS is […]

3D Print of Niemann Pick C1

This 3D print of Niemann-Pick C1 is printed in full-color sandstone and colored by the protein’s hydrophobicity. Blue is are the hydrophilic regions of the protein, and red colors the hydrophobic regions. Since this is a membrane bound protein, visualizing its hydrophobicity allows us to visually identify the hydrophobic portion that spans the plasma membrane.  Models are […]

Comparative Analysis of Pembrolizumab and PD-1 Receptor Binding Properties

Immunotherapy is the treatment of cancer using antibodies that target points of failure in the life cycle of cancer cells. Many of these therapies involve altering monoclonal antibodies to target specific proteins associated with different types of cancer. Understanding the binding properties of these proteins is of utmost importance. Pembrolizumab, an igG4 Monoclonal Antibody Some […]

Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase (PI3K)

3D Print of Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase (PI3K) denoting common mutation sites (E545, H1047) that result in an oncogenic enzyme. This model was created from PDB dataset: 5DXT and visualizes the PI3K inhibitor GDC-0326. Protein Description PI3K are a family of enzymes involved in cellular functions such as cell growth, proliferation, differentiation, motility, survival and intracellular trafficking, which in turn are involved in […]
