Human Cytomegalovirus HCMV Glycoprotein B

Featured Image

Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) poses a significant threat to immunocompromised individuals and neonates infected in utero. Glycoprotein B (gB), the herpesvirus fusion protein, is a target for neutralizing antibodies and a vaccine candidate due to its indispensable role in infection. HCMV is the leading infectious cause of congenital abnormalities in the Wwestern world (more…)

Nucleosome 3C1B

Nucleosome, Biologic Models, 3C1B

A Nucleosome is the basic structural unit of DNA that assemble into a chromosome. Each nucleosome consists of a segment of DNA wound in sequence around eight histone protein cores. This structure is often compared to thread wrapped around a spool.  Use this 3D printed model of DNA wrapped around a histone core to explain how DNA is…

Psilocybin bound to Serotonin Receptor

Psilocybin, 4ib4, Biologic Model, Molecular Model

Psilocybin bound to Serotonin Receptor Psilocybin, the active ingredient in psychoactive mushrooms, has provided the spiritual and cultural bedrock of many great civilizations. The Aztecs referred to teonanácatl, which translates as ‘divine mushroom’, and modern neuroscience has revealed how psilocybin interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain in order to produce a range of consciousness-altering…

TDP-43 Wild Type and Mutant in Complex with DNA

TDP-43, ALS, Biologic Models

TDP-43 Wild Type and Mutant in Complex with DNA ALS is a fatal motor neuron disorder characterized pathologically by TAR DNA binding protein ( TDP-43 ). The function of TDP-43 is uncertain, and role in ALS remains speculative. Genome scanning reveals mutations associated to neural apoptosis. (more…)

EGFR Mutant Tyrosine Kinase

EGFR, Mutant, Biologic Models

EGFR Mutant Tyrosine Kinase Mutations in EGFR lead to over-expression of proteins and different types of cancers as cells continually and proliferate. This 3D print of EGFR Tyrosine Kinase visualizes the mutations of key residues that lock the protein’s A-loop (orange) in its active conformation resulting in continued cellular proliferation.

Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor

Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor, 3UON

Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor 3UON Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors are G protein-coupled receptor complexes in the cell membranes of certain neurons and cells. They play several roles, including acting as the main end-receptor stimulated by acetylcholine released from postganglionic fibers in the parasympathetic nervous system. This 3D printed protein model of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor is visualized by its ribbon structure highlighting the protein’s transmembrane active sites. (more…)
