    PIP4K II Alpha and Beta

    Recently, Cornell University commissioned us to create 3D printed models of PIP4K II Alpha and Beta for the purpose of demonstrating PIP4K dimerization. (more…)

    Oxygenated Hemoglobin Hb

    3D reproduction of Oxygenated Hemoglobin Hb, 18 Million times larger than diameter actual protein. Colored in red are the protein’s HEME Groups, disk-like structures with an Iron atom core. It is to this Iron atom core that binds O2 molecules (Blue) bind.

    3D Print of the Insulin Receptor bound by Insulin

    This is a 3D print of the Insulin Receptor in complex with Insulin. This model is generated from PDB IDs:  3Wi4 and 2MFR. It is color coded to denote the dimer configuration on the plasma membrane.

    Glycated Hemoglobin HbA1c

    3D reproduction of Glycated Hemoglobin HbA1c protein. Glucose and fructose attach to hemoglobin in a process called "glycation" that damages the protein, impairing its function by changing hemoglobin's 3-dimensional structure.
