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 […]

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 […]

Pembrolizumab, ( KEYTRUDA ), PD1, Keytruda, Biologic Models

3D Print of Pembrolizumab KEYTRUDA bound to PD1

This is a 3D print of Pembrolizumab KEYTRUDA bound to PD-1. Models available in multiple materials and sizes. Pembrolizumab (formerly MK-3475 and lambrolizumab, trade name Keytruda) is a humanized monoclonal antibody used in cancer immunotherapy. It removes a protective mechanism on cancer and allows the immune system to destroy those cancer cells. It does so by targeting the programmed cell death 1(PD-1) receptor. The drug was initially […]
