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 civilisations. 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 effects.…

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…)
