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 […]
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 […]
This is a 3D print of PARP1 bound by Zejula, the first in class drug for women with recurrent ovarian cancer, regardless of BRCA mutation. Zejula is an oral medication taken once daily. Protein Description Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP1) is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the PARP1 gene. It is one of the PARP family of enzymes. […]

3D print of Pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA) bound to PD-1. Model available in multiple materials and sizes. “Pembrolizumab (formerly MK-3475and lambrolizumab, trade name Keytruda) is a humanized antibodyused in cancer immunotherapy. It destroys a protective mechanism on cancer cells, and allows the immune system to destroy those cancer cells. It targets the programmed cell death 1(PD-1) receptor. The drug was initially used in treating metastatic melanoma.” Protein […]
This is a 3D print of X-ray crystallography dataset 4HJO, the Crystal Structure of the Inactive EGFR Tyrosine Kinase Domain with Erlotinib. 4TRP Protein Description Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exists on the cell surface and is activated by binding of its specific ligands, including epidermal growth factor and transforming growth factor α (TGFα) (note, a […]
