3D Print of Tresiba Insulin Hexomer

3D print of 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, macromolecular 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.…

3D Print of Novolog Insulin Hexomer

3D Print of 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…
