Humalog Insulin Hexamer

Humalog Insulin Hexamer

This is a model of the pharmaceutical drug Humalog, insulin lispro, in its stable macro-molecule hexamer form. It is colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature. Chains A and C are stained yellow, and Chains B and D are stained dark orange-red. The core of the macromolecule shows the stable, cool binding region of each monomer, an […]

Tresiba Insulin Hexomer

This is a model of the pharmaceutical drug Tresiba, insulin degludec, in its stable macro-molecule hexamer form. Tresiba is a fascinating drug, engineered to create long, marcro-molecular filaments that get stored in fat. Attached to each hexamer are 6 hydrocarbon chains (blue-cyan sticks). They act like tails reaching out to a neighbor hexamer to bind. […]

Novolog Insulin Hexomer

This is a model of the pharmaceutical drug Novolog, insulin aspart, in its stable macro-molecule hexamer form. It is colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature. Chains A and C are stained yellow, and Chains B and D are stained dark orange-red. The core of the macromolecule shows the stable, cool binding region of each monomer, an […]

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 […]

Inactive EGFR Tyrosine Kinase

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 […]

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 […]
