3D Print of Oligosaccharyltransferase Complex

Oligosaccharyltransferase Complex, OST, ETH Zurich, Biologic Models

This is a 3D print of oligosaccharyltransferase (OST) complex. It is colored blue according to the protein’s electrostatic property. Colored green are various monosaccharides attached to OST as sugar trees. Isolated and colored by atom type are the binding residues that attach shuttling proteins. Colored white are individual phospholipids from a plasma membrane. (more…)

MT-3724 Realtime 3D Explorer Here we can see the anti-CD20 FAB light (yellow) and heavy (grey) chains bound to the CD20 Receptor (blue) lodged in a membrane. This is the natural orientation of CD20 and the FAB found in protein dataset 20SL. On top of the FAB complex is the ETB scaffolding. The Shiga-like Toxin…

3D Print of 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. (more…)
