For millions of years, bacteria and viruses have been locked in an evolutionary arms race. Viruses evolving new mechanisms to evade CRISPR, and CRISPR evolving to find different ways of preventing re-infection. CRISPR-Cas13a 5XWP is one such permutation.
Cas13a is colored turquoise and tinted according to the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature. Colored yellow is the target RNA and red is the Guide RNA. 3D print of CRISPR Cas13a printed in full-color sandstone created from PDB ID: 5XWP.
